Final exam week" eliminated 

Mllllgan students can say 
good-bye to that paradoxical 
week oi worry and relaxation 
known as exam week — at least 
for this semester. 

As upperclassmenwill clear- 
ly recall, it had been Mllligan 
policy to use the final week of 
the semester for a schedule of 
two-hour examination periods 
for each course offered. 

This usually meant that a 
student either had his exams 
all at the beginning or end of 
the week — in which case he 
might get a chance to go home — 

or his tests might be spread 
out over the week — in which 
case he was confined to cam- 

Of course, if a student had 
all of his exams within two or 
three days he faced a much 
more difficult study schedule. 

However, this year Dean 
Oakes and the Academic Com- 
mittee have decided to do away 
with this week of scheduled 
exams. Regular classes will 
continue until the final day of 
the semester with professors 
giving their finals sometime 

during the regular class sess- 
ions of the final week. 

There are two reasons why 
the Academic Committee made 
this change: 

First, as mentioned before, 
the arbitrary exam week sche- 
dule gave some students the 
opportunity for a five or six 
day vacation If all of their ex- 
ams were early in the week. 
This situation caused some 
complaint by a few of the stu- 
dents who were forced to re- 
main on campus throughout the

A much-discussed topic on 
the Milligan College campus 
for several weeks has been the 
Idea of completing a semester 
before Christmas in the calen- 
dar for the 1970-71 year. 

This idea has been lightly 
mentioned In the Academic 
Committee for the past two 
years but is now being ser- 
iously considered. Over half 
of the schools in the Southern 
Association, Milllgan's ac- 
creditors, have either changed 
to such a system or are con- 
templating a change. 

In December, the faculty met 
to discuss the matter and talk 
over the suggested three alter- 
natives to the system now In ef- 
fect. They agreed that no 
further official action should 
be taken until the faculty have 
had more time to consider the 

Also student opinion is being 
sought and the problem has been 
brought to the attention of the 
Student Council. 

Three alternatives to the 
present system have been sug- 
gested. The most likely of 
the three is to start the school 
year earlier so that the first 
semester will be over by 

The second Is to have a Jan- 
uary term of concentrated study 
between the fall and spring 

The third Is to change to 
either the quarter or trimes- 
ter system. 

The first suggestion seems 
most feasible for Milligan. The 
fall semester would start at 
the end of August and be over 
by Christmas. 

There are several advantages 
to a calendar of this type. The 
most obvious would be the 
elimination of the ' 'lame- 
duck" session In January 
before the end of first semes- 

Another advantage would be 
the lengthening of Christmas 
vacation for two to three weeks. 
The Second semester would be- 
gin the second or third week In 

Also, the spring semester 
would be over bymid-May. This 
would give Mllllgan students a 
better chance to obtain better 
summer jobs.

Fifteen Milligan College stu- 
dents have formed a pep band 
for the purpose of adding pep 
and enthusiasm to the ball gam- 

BAND AID — The Mllligan Pep Band warms up before a recent basketball game. The band, 
under the direction of Mr. Dowd, has been responsible for much of the increased school spirit 
this year. 


The students play popular 
songs at the home basketball 
games. "Basin Street Blues,'" 
"Saints in Concert," and "Jer- 
sey Bounce" are selections the 
band presents. They also play 
"The Star -Spangled Banner" 
before each game. 

Mr. John Dowd is the direc- 
tor of the musicians. Mr. Dowd 
is chairman of the Fine Arts 
Department of Milligan College, 
and he is also a private music 

Anyone interested in joining 
the pep band is encouraged to 
contact Mr. Dowd. He can be 
reached In the music office, 
which is located in the base- 
ment of the chapel. 

The band practices on Sun- 
day nights at 8:30 in lower 
Seeger Auditorium. 

Most of the players pro- 
vide their own instruments, 
but some of the larger In- 
struments such as drums, sou- 
saphone, and baritones are part 
of the school's equipment. The 
music is supplied by Milligan

Friday Si Saturday 

For the spring semester a 
tour hundred level psychology 
course called "Essentials of 
Psychological Testing" will 
be offered if there are enough 
students Interested in the 

"Essentials of Psychological 
Testing" will be a revision of 
the course called "Tests and 
Measurements" scheduled for 
the fall semester, but cancelled 
because of lack of interest. 

The revised course is to be an 
introduction to the area of psy- 

chological testing. It will in- 
clude such tests as I.Q., profi- 
ciency, personality traits, spe- 
cial abilities, and interest in- 
ventories. Since statistics play 
such a large role in psycholo- 
gical test analysis, the course 
will also include some elemen- 
tary statistics. 

Dr. Patton will teach the 
course and plans to use the text 
"Essentials of Psychological 
Testing" by Cror.bach. Pre- 
requisite for the course is 
twelve hours of psychology.

In the survey, a question dealt 
with the Vietnam War. Several 
choices were present. Fourteen 
students chose that the U.S. 
should have a complete and im- 
mediate withdrawal from Viet-

chose: that the U. S. should 
withdraw gradually. 

Thirteen students chose thai 
the U. S. should go full steam 
ahead. One student 'chose that 
the U. S. clean up the mess or 
get out. One other student did 
not answer. 

Another question was on 
whether the students were for 
or against the war morator- 
ium. Sixty-two were against 
the war moratorium. Thirty- 
four were for the war morator-

Teach-in will 
warn of crisis 
in nature 

Plane are now well under- 
way for a nationwide Teach-lr 
next spring, Wednesday, April 
22, on the grave crisis facing 
the quality of the environment 
and the quality of life In Ameri- 
ca today. 

A national headquarters and 
staff to organize, coordinate, 
and service this effort is now 
established in Washington. The 
address Is Room 600, 2100 
M Street, N.W., Washington, 
D.C. 20037. 

The aim of the National 
Teach-in is to encourage stu- 
dents across the country to 
take the initiative In organi- 
zing April 22 environmental 
teach-ins on their campuses, 
and assolcated efforts in their 

Successful teach-ins on all 
campuses on the same day will 
have a dramatic impact on the 
environmental conscience of the 
nation. They will be Immensely 
effective as an educational ef- 
fort In arousing public opinion 
concerning necessary steps to 
protect our environment and 
establish quality on a par with 
quantity as a goal of Ameri- 
can life. 

There is no question that in 
the long run, the environmen- 
tal challenge Is the greatest 
faced by mankind. Distinguished 
scientific authorities have been 
warning for years that mankind 
is rapidly destroying the very 
habitat on which he depends for 
his survival. 

In addition, population con- 
tinues to increase worldwide — 
while scientist warn that we 
may have already passed sus- 
tainable population levels. All 
across the country, and world- 
wide, increasing numbers of 
citizens are voicing the same 
intense concern as has been 
so eloquently expressed by the 
ecoJogists and other environ- 

Yet, many are still not aware 
of the environmental problems 
being created by our advanc- 
ing technology. Federally-fin- 
anced projects — such as the 
supersonic transport plane- 
raise grave questions about 
possible new environmental 
dangers. Many respected scien- 
tists and national leaders have 
indicated that although some 
positive steps have been taken 
toxic, persistent pesticides are 
still accumulating in the world 
environment, wreaking destru- 
ction on fish and wildlife — and 
threatening man himself. Is the 
price we pay for these products 
In terms of their effect upon 
our environment worth the 
benefits we obtain from them? 
The pollution of our rivers 
and lakes, and of the air in 
our urban areas continues to 
accelerate. Suburban sprawl 
continues to destroy vast scenic 
and recreational resources, 
with little heed being given 
to plans to create workable 
environments. And the millions 
trapped In our urban and rural 
ghettos continue to suffer the 
worst of the masslveair, water, 
land and noise pollution. 

BUFORD GETS SET FOR WORK — A 1969 graduate of Milligan, Buford is an enthusiastic 
supporter of his alma mater, in both official and non-official capacities. He travelled 42,000 
miles last year in recruitment effort for the school. 

Applications increased 

Deaton heads student recruitment 

Student application for Milli- 
gan College has increased l&% 
over last year at this time; Mr. 
Buford Deaton is responsible 
for representing the college to 
high school Juniors and seniors 
considering college enrollment. 

When be began his work last 
year as Director of Student 
Enlistment, Mr. Deaton tra- 
veled with the College Board, a 
group of some fifty college and 
university enlistment officers 
from a four or five state area. 

These menappearedjointly at 
"college nights" or similar 
high school functions. But this 
method of recruitment proved 
to be somewhat undesirable for 
Mr. Deaton. 

A graduate of Milligan, be 
feels that his position is a some- 
what delicate one. He may be the 
first contact that many people 
have with the college. He per- 
sonally believes in the value of 
individuality and relies more 
upon the personal approach to 
student enlistment. 

He says that most of his 
contacts are made at church- 
es, area youth rallies, high 
schools, and Christian service- 
camps --thelargest percentage 
coming from the churches. He 
also credits many contacts to 
interested students and alumni. 

Other contacts for the college 
are made at conventions such 
as the North American Chris- 
tian Convention, Florida State 
Youth Convention, and others. 

Since approximately 75% of 
his work is done In churches, 
Mr. Deaton explained his acti- 
vities on a typical Sunday when 


608 W. Walnut St. 
Johnson City 

visiting a church. He is usual- 
ly asked to participate in Sun- 
day School classes and also 
takes part in the morning ser- 
vice with special music and a 
short personal testimony. 

During the afternoon, be 
meets with interested students 
and parents to introduce Mil- 
ligan College to them, ans- 
wering any questions tbeyhave. 
In the evening, be presents a 
sacred concert and personal 
testimony to the congregation. 

Mr. Deaton, besides his work 
in student enlistment, is also 
the head resident of Pardee 
Hall, where he lives with his 
wife and two children. He says 
that there is loneliness involved 
in his travels, but he feels that 
his job is important to Milligan. 
He takes humble pride in being 
asked to represent the school, 
and in 1969 traveled over 42,- 
000 miles in its behalf. 

When asked about the effect 
of his work on enrollment at 
Milligan, Mr. Deaton said that 
the effect Is not always visible. 

The full results of his work 
may not be seen for several 
years. He pointed out, how- 
ever, that Milligan has gained 
in student enrollment while oth- 
er southern colleges of simi- 
lar size have lost students. 
Not only has the number of ap- 
plications increased, but also 
he feels that the quality of 
students has improved. 

Faire Le Pont 

soon ready 
for purchase 

The second issue of Milli- 
gan's literary magazine, Faire 
Le Pont, designed, written, and 
sold by students, will be avail- 
able for distribution during the 
first week of the Spring semes- 
ter, according to Paul Makucb, 
the editor. 

The magazine will consist of 
44 pages oi poems, stories, 
photos, designs, essays, and an 
original song by Milligan stu- 
dents. Although a few faculty 
members did contribute pieces 
at the request of the editorial 
stall, the editorial decisions 
were made by the students. 
Because the students gained 
valuable experience in turning 
out the first number last year, 
they are able to assist in the ac- 
tual compilation of the maga- 
zines; thus the price will be 
lowered this year to $.50 for 
pre-publication subscriptions 
and $.60 after publication. 

Tracey Miller of the Hu- 
manities Program sponsors the 
program which is underwritten 
by the Humanities. 

The forth-coming issue of 
Faire Le Pont will have greater 
variety than last year's; more 
students have contributed, and 
they have expressed a wider 
range of viewpoints in greatly 
differing styles. In addition, 
special photographic process- 
ing will provide some unusual 
scenic effects

Concerned Faculty 

The heavy snowfall In East Tennessee last week demonstrated In 
an unusual manner that Milligr.n College is able to boast of an ad- 
mirable relationship between faculty and students. As the precipi- 
tation froze to the highways in solid sheets of ice and drifted heaps 
of whiteness across the landscape, all public schools in Carter 
County and Washington County were closed for the next few days. 
But despite inconveniences, including hazardous driving conditions, 
more than 90% of the Milligan faculty arrived on campus to meet 
their classes. 

MUligan students did not need the recent snow, however, to be 
convinced of their professors' dedication and interest. Last semes- 
ter three out of four students polled in a campus-wide survey indicat- 
ed that their relationship with their professors was above the 
average of other colleges: either "good" or "excellent." In another 
critique with a 60 point scale which was administered by a self- 
Study committee, not one Milligan professor received fewer than 
forty-five points at the hands of his students. 

Statistics have also Indicated that the second choice of MUligan 
students for counseling are their classroom professors who are ap- 
proached only after the roommate (the students' first choice) has fail- 
ed to help. If this is the case, then the function of the faculty at 
Milligan College Is more than mere instruction; It is additionally the 
active concern of fellow members of a Christian community. Such 
openness is expressed In classroom discussions, convocation forums, 
and extensive office hours In the new faculty building. Such open- 
ness is not subject to inclement weather. 

Guest Editorial 

In an age when college administrators are fighting desperately to 
preserve the values and institutionalized practices of their schools. 
It should not be forgotten that students also have values that are In 
need of protection. 

With this thought in mind, I feel that the Academic Committee 
should reconsider their decision to eliminate exam week. I consider 
that decision both unnecessary and unfair in that student opinion was 
apparently not taken into proper consideration. 

Anyone present at the January 6th open forum convocation could 
plainly see that several students were quite upset with the decision, 
and I would go so far to guess that the majority of the student body 
is also against the decision. 

The reason for this is obvious -- exam week has always provided 
the students with an extra break (in some instances a longer vaca- 
tion than Fall Break). Even those students who did not get a chance 
to go home could look forward to some extra hours of relaxation. 

It is hard to believe that very many students complained about 
more fortunate students getting a break when their schedule would not 
allow them one — such small persons are usually few and far be- 
tween. It is also hard to believe that most professors will alter 
their usual exam policy In this new set-up. The only change l see Is 
that students will have to take some class cuts If they want a vaca- 

It Is difficult enough being on a semester set-up which dampens 
our Christmas vacation with thoughts of term papers and exams. 
Why worsen the situation by ruining any hope the students might 
have for a "January Break7" — especially without considering 
student opinion? JEFF KNOWLES

In regards to the convocation 

The forum Itself is an Inter- 
esting Idea, Involving scores of 
democratic ideals, but I now 
ask publicly, as I have privately 
asked friends, "Why is there no 
one there who can give some 
answers?" I congratulate Dr. 
Wetzel and Dr. Fife in attemp- 
ting to offer some answers to 
the current questions on the 
change In semester break; they 
displayed the willingness to 
communicate that the students 
display in posing questions. But 
they seemed very much alone. 

Most will agree that dialogue 
Is Important, and the questions 
the students have asked are not 
usually ones that other students 
can answer. If this forum is to 
be effective in promoting stu- 
dent - faculty - administration 
harmony I humbly suggest that 
these with answers display In- 
terest, realize the importance

Clinchfield Railroad con- 
struction is currently con- 
tinuing through! the East Ten- 
nessee State University cam- 
pus at an unparalleled rate. 
Burning, blasting, and grading 
by construction crews have 
been taking place for almost 
a month in an effort to shove 
the railroad directly through 
the campus as quickly as pos- 

Evidence of Clincbfield's 
handiwork can be seen by the 
ugly 150 foot wide path that 
ha6 been cut through the cam- 
pus" just south of the dormitor- 

All efforts by ETSU officials 
to stop the construction have 
proved fruitless. University 
President, D. P. Culp has made 
countless efforts to compro- 
mise with Clinchfield offi- 
cials. But the railroad's stem 
unwelldlng position proves that 
they are not interested In higher 
education In Tennessee but only 
higher profits which they think 
the "high line" route willpro- 

Clinchfield has used many 
excuses as to why their route 
through the ETSU campus 
should be permitted. One typi- 
cal point of reasoning was made 

STAMPEDE-February 9, 1967- Page 6 

just what is an athlete ?;This 
may seem to be an absurd 
question comingfrom the sports 
editor of a paper, but, for rea- 
sons soon to be discussed, I 
think my Idea of an athlete may 
be wrong, and l want to find 
the right answer. 

I always thought an athlete 
was one who sacrificed every- 
thing for victory, had a clean, 
strong body and made a special 
attempt to set an example for 
people. Evidently, this is the 
wrong Impression of an athlete. 

To prove it, all I have to 
do Is look around this campus 
and then listen to the local gos- 
sip and bragging to see who got 
drunk over the weekend. Is an 
athlete one who drinks, smokes, 
stays out half the night, plays 
the part of a tough guy, prac- 
tices hard only when he feels 
like It, fools around In class 
and/or takes advantage of his 
coach's position in the faculty 
and the community to get him 
out of jams? 

J'm not saying athlete deter- 
ioration Is present only on this 
campus; far from it. I Imagine 
the bigger the campus, themore 
prevalew the condition. How- 
ever, why must it be at all? 
Athletes have been known as 
great sacrificers since the be- 
ginning of sporting competition; 
why can't we sacrifice some to 
keep this reputation Intact? 

Certainly, the athlete looks 
tough with a cigarette In one 
hand and a beer In the other, 
but he really looks sick when 

he has to beat a full court 
press or ride out a tough wrest- 
ler for three minutes after the 
tobacco and alcohol have taken 

If he doesn't care about his 
own reputation, he should think 
of the example he's setting for 
the school. I don't think a drag 
on a butt is that important nor 
is a gulp of beer. If he must 
do either, can't It at least wait 
until the season's over? 

Ken Hart 

in an appeal to the people of 
Johnson City. It read as fol- 
lows, "This project (the route 
through the ETSU campus) will 
make downtown Johnson City 
many times safer and indes- 
cribably more convenient. . ." 
The truth about the mat- 
ter is that Southern Railroad 
Co., will continue to go through 
Johnson City regardless oi 
where Clinchfield puts their 
tracks, and the traffic prob- 
lems and downtown confusion 
will still continue. 

Clinchfield's reason for 
moving their railroad Is purely 
economical. They feel that the 
•'high line" will provide abet- 
ter access route and higher 
profits for the railroad. 
Clinchfield is evidently eco- 
nomically stable or they would 
be unable to undertake the S^ 
million dollar expansion pro- 
ject. We hope that Clinch- 
field officials along with the 
honorable Tennessee gover- 
nor realize that personal eco- 
nomic motives should not be 
given preference over the 
future of East Tennessee State 
University. Time Is getting 
short and now they are the only 
ones who can stop the construc- 
tion. The future of ETSU could 
very well rest in their hands I -

The STAMPEDE, Friday, Jan. 16, 1970-page 5 
One of the responsibilities o( the STAMPEDE la to deal wlrh 
Issues of current concern among students, both by fairly pre- 
senting the facts and by accurately representing the opinions 
which arise. During a recent Open Forum In convocation, the 
Issue of the college's requirement that all unmarried, non- 
commuting students live in the dormitories came under serious 
question, presented on this page is a dialectic discussion of the 
problems involved, not as s means of polarizing positions but in 
the hope that a synthesis of understanding might be the result. 

Should a non-commuting student live off campus? 


Mr. Jack Metheany, Commuter 

This article Is designed to 
respond to the recent state- 
ment denying any unmarried, 
non-commuting student to live 
off campus and compelling all 
such students now living off 
campus to return to the dor- 
mitories. Such a statement can 
be Justified under the auspices 
of the catalog provision which 
states to the effect that "all 
students not commuting from 
home are required to live on 
campus, . .unless other ar- 
rangements are made with the 

Before 1 begin outlining some 
fundamental criticisms of the 
above policy, 1 would like to 
answer what seems to be the 
most prevalent criticism per- 
taining to the issued statement: 
that It is an abridgement of 
rights to coerce adult students 
to live on campus. On the con- 
trary, the administration is 
forcing no one to live any place; 
any one can live off campus 
who wishes to do so, only such 
a person may not attend this 
co lege. 

One reason suggested by the 
Dean of Men in a recent con- 
vocation for the policy change 
Is the need for money. Milll- 
gan makes a great deal of mon- 
ey from the dormitory and board 
fees paid by each student. Hen- 
ce, Milllgan loses money for 
each student who lives and eats 
elsewhere. But it seems rather 
Incongruous for Mllllgan's ad- 
ministration to adopt such a 
change during the 1969-1970 
academic year which exper- 
ienced one. of the largest and 
transfer class in Mllllgan's 

Furthermore, the remedial 
humanities course was devised 
this year to prevent many stu- 
dents who are in some ways un- 
prepared for college work from 
flunking out. And fewer flunk- 
outs presumably means less va- 
cated dormitory space. 
A second reason offered by the 
Dean of Men for the change in 
policy Is to eliminate some of 
the undesirable practices of 
those who are currently living 
off campus, I seriously doubt 
that gathering the "trouble- 
makers" Into the dormitories 
would stiffle much of their 
"trouble malting." Insisting the 
students live on campus is no 
guarantee that they will spend 
any time there. 

I can Chink of no undesirable 
activity which would be inhi- 
bited by locating a person's 
board and bed on campus. Fur- 
thermore, it would more ser- 
iously Jeopardize the school's 
Image if a dormitory student 
were caught participating In 
an activity contrary to the nat- 
ure of the college than if such 
a person were merely a fringe, 
peripheral, off-campus student. 
Now 1 would tike ro turn at- 
tention from the reply to the 

Justifications of the change in 
off-campus policy to a more 
personal. Intimate aspect: those 
students being victimized by the 
change in policy. It Is regret- 
ably Inconvenient that the 
change of policy occurred at 
mid-semester, a time when it 
is extremely difficult to make 
alternate plans, such as trans- 
ferring toanother school. Those 
students now living off campus 
are faced with the choice of 
either returning to campus or 
quitting school for a semester 
or a quarter. 

One student foresaw the chan- 
ge of policy through an earlier 
encounter with the business of- 
fice and enrolled at East Ten- 
nessee State University, even 
though he wanted to be educat- 
ed at Milligan. He found the 
price of dormitory life finan- 
cially Impossible. 

Two other students, both for- 
eign , see their Immediate fut- 
ure as rather bleak and hazy. 
The change of policy inquest- 
ion, being a rather universal 
dictum, seems contrary to a 
much larger, more esteemable 
policy of Milligan College: 
avoidance of sweeping ordinan- 
ces in lieu of individual con- 
sideration and personal con- 


Mr. Duard Walker, Dean 

MUUgan College is primarily 
a residential college. The 
closeness and the unity of the 
student bodies of ' the present 
and past years, for the most 
part, has been due to the vast 
majority of students living on 
campus. Many students who 
must commute from their 
homes have voiced their feel- 
ings of having missed some- 
thing by not having lived on 

Many of our commuting stu- 
dents are excellent students 
and some of them take full ad- 
vantage of the opportunities 
available to them by having 
matriculated at Milligan, Oth- 
ers, possibly through neces- 
sity, rush to classes and rush 
back home without becoming 
involved in the college com- 
munity, either by having shared 
themselves as persons or by 
having received a pan of the 
character and lives of others 
from all regions of our nation. 

In my opinion, a college is 
people. Much of our total educa- 
tion comes about by our asso- 
ciation with people. The give- 
and-take of dormitory life is 
part of that education. Some 
students have never had to share 
a room with another person. 
This Is a realistic situation. 
All things are not ideal. One's

Most publications list their 
name on the cover of that pub-

this. As a matter of fact, if 
you will check your annual, you 
will find that the word "Buffa-

liable source that the grandjury 
which is Investigating gambling

has several Milligan sports fi- 
gures under investigation in- 
cluding basketball star 
"Toonle" Cash and wrestling 

coach "Doc" Orvel Crowder. 

While admitting that the Buffs 
had ' 'blown' ' a recent game. 
Cash insisted that they had not 
done so intentionally. The 
money which he was seen ac- 
cepting from a stranger was 
used to feed the hungry team, 
Toonie stated. 

When asked about the charges 
that members of the wrestling 
team had been seen with dis- 
reputable characters. Coach 
Crowder retorted that the 
wrestling team was composed 
of disreputable characters.

Carson - Newman has always 
been regarded as the game of 
the year in the Milligan basket- 
ball schedule. BM was sur- 
prised, therefore, to note that 
the attendance at that game this 
year numbered a mere 250 

students, faculty, college pre- 
sidents, Happy Valiey kids 
and referees. We are happy 
that such a powerful team as the 
Johnson Bible College Preach- 
ers can replace C-N as Mllll- 
gan's hottest rival. The at- 
tendance at the Johnson game 
was well over 800.

included in the last issue, BM 
stated that It never snows on 
Christmas. Christmas Day it 
snowed 8 inches at Milligan.

Though one may never be a 
politician he must admit that to 
know persons is Important. As 
a dormitory student for four 
years In a school the size of 
Milllgan, he will have opport- 
unity to know from 1200 to 1400 
students. As a dormitory stu- 
dent one could know at least half 
of them by name. As an off- 
campus student one might not 
take the opportunity X o know 
200 by name. After graduation 
In bis travels over the country, 
he will meet many of those whom 
he has taken the time to know 
here. Some of those may be of 
great service to him and him 
to them. 

In recent times the good re- 
putation of Milligan has been 
tainted by an uncertain amount 
of public awareness of some 
events that have occurred and 
situations that have existed in 
some of the apartments and 
trailer homes of some of our 

The college does not have 
the personnel available nor the 
time to spend In supervising the 
living accommodations of our 
unmarried students who are not 
living at home. The same good 
conduct is expected for the off- 
campus students as the dormi- 
tory students. There are cases 
in which dormitory students 
and others have taken advantage 
of off-campus students by hav- 
ing activities there which they 
knew would not be allowed In the 

In addition to the above, it is 
a financial urgency that the 
available on-campus rooms be 
filled beiore allowing the off- 
campus apartments and trailer 
courts to flourish on the sup- 
port of unmarriedstuoenis.The 
budget of the college is affect- 
ed by the degree of occupancy 
of our dormitories. 

The college Is not unreason- 
able in its expectation for single 
students as stated in the cur- 
rent catalog concerning student 
residence. Their understanding 
and confidence in the back-to- 
the-campus policy will be ap- 
preciated by those who might 
feel the sting of silent or ver- 
bal abuse and will help to make 
us a better Milligan. 

Those unmarried students 
who are now living off -campus 
and not commuting from their 
homes should sec the Dean of 
Men before the end of this term 
so that dormitory assignments 
may be made. Choice of dormi- 
tories will be in the order of

Student Council acts 
onexams and concert 

At the student Council meet- 
ing last night, a resolution was 
passed to change the dress 
code in the cafeteria. 

The Council had been asked to 
establish a cafeteria dress 
code for students. Denny 
Crossman Is chairman of the 
committee formed lor this pur- 
pose. Other committee mem- 
bers are Mike Mutter spaugh 
and George Bradley. 

The suggested basis for the 
code Is a recent survey given 
In convocation combined with 
Student Council discussion. The 
committee will present the 
code for approval at the next 
regular council meeting. 

Casual dress was suggested 
as appropriate attire for week 
days, Sunday dress lor the noon 
meal and school dress for the 
evening meal on Sundays. 

The Boxtops were decided 
upon as entertainment for one 
of Mtlllgan's concerts. Final 
arrangements will be made by 
the concert committee. Jan 
Mclntyre and Darnell Messlck 
are co-chairmen.

The council decided that Mil- 
llgan cheerleaders should be 
elected by an outside authority 
rather than by student body 
vote. East Tennessee State 
University cheerleaders were 
suggested as qualified persons 
to make the choice. 

The suggestion was also 
made that potential cheer- 
leaders be Interviewed and 
recommended by Coach Wor- 
rell or another coach. These 
new methods of selection would 
emphasize skill and school 
spirit rather than popularity as 
cheerleader qualifications. 

The council Is sending a 
recommendation to the Aca- 
demic Committee that It change 
this semester's exam schedule 
back this semester to the old 
method wlih strict adherence 
to the schedule. If the plan is 
not changed, the council re- 
quests that teachers giving 
several exams inform students 
as to which parts will be given 
to specific days. 

A committee was appointed 
to form an organization to build 
up school spirit. Members of 
the committee are Kathy Stout, 
Mike Mutterspaugh, Stan JCin- 
nett, and Ernie Hertzog.

Milligan as 
an institution 
seeks growth 

The success of a college Is 
measured not only In the cali- 
ber of Its students, but In Its 
ability to manage Itself as an 
Institution as well, and Milli- 
gan College can be considered 
a success on both counts. 

A recent interview with Mr. 
Joe Mccormick, Assistant to 
the President, reveals that Mil- 
llgan's success can be seen in 
several tangible areas. 

For the faculty, there have 
been cost-of-living salary in- 
creases almost everyyear.One 
faculty member was heard to 
remark recently that, generally 
speaking, Milligan faculty 
members have little financial 
incentive to seek employment 
elsewhere, contrary to the of- 
ten mentioned rumor. 

Librarian John Neth has re- 
ported that during 1969, 4185 
volumes were added to the li- 
brary's collection. On the aver- 
age, a library book costs from 
$10 to $15 ready to be shelved. 
The approximate $60,000 spent 
on new books Is In addition to 
the cost of repairing and bind- 
ing of older books and maga- 
zines which goes on continu- 

Mllilgan's endowment fund 
increased by 4% In 1969. The 
endowment fund Is a reserve 
fund comprised of donations 
given specifically for the fund. 
This money is not to be spent. 
Rather, it is managed by the 
Hamilton National Bant, which 
periodically sends the college 
a check for the money which 
the fund has earned. 

This money is then unrestric- 
ted, and Is used to meet part 
of the expenses of the college 
not covered by student tuition 
and fees. Many students do not 
realize that the money they pay 
to Milligan actually covers only 
75 to 80% of the cost of their 

Various programs of finan- 
cial aid are available to stu- 
dents. Last year, more than 
120 students received financial 
aid, as outright gifts, loans.or 
work scholarships. The student 
aid program has been expan- 
ded and Is expected to contin- 
ue to expand. 

In addition to the money sup- 
plied by the endowment fund 
and student payments, gifts 
from Individuals and corpor- 
ations balance out the remain- 
der of the school's financial 

Milligan' s plans for future 
expansion of its facilities are 
interrelated, Mr. McCormick 
noted. Plans had been made to 
remodel the administration 
building, when Mr. B.D. Phil- 
lips suggested the construct- 
ion of Seeger Memorial Chapel 
and offered a large sum of 
money toward Its construction. 
Plans for the administration 
building were once again set 
aside when Dr. Sam Bowers 
pledged $50,000 toward the con- 
struction of a science build- 
ing. Currently, further work on 
the science facility is eagerly 
anticipated, and the remodeling 
of the administration building 
Is to commence after the com- 
pletion of the new building.

now 4-11. 

Toonie Cash leads Mllligan 
in scoring with 291 points and 
an average of 22.4 Don Threlk-

an average of 19.4. Roger Phil-

other two Buffs averaging in

Mllligan's frosh boast a 5-2 
record, following a 98-57 
victory over Southeast Com- 
munity of Kentucky and a 100- 
79 win over the Blanton Busi-

Ed Purdy topped the Buffs 
with 32 and 22 points in those 
two encounters. 

Short notice substitutions 
cause double mat defeats 

In its second and third meet 
of the season, the Mllligan 
Wrestling Team lost to the 
University of Georgia 20-12 
on December 17 and to the 
University of Chattanooga 28-14 
on January 10. 

The Buffs were scheduled to 
tangle with the University of 
Tennessee here last night, but 
the match was scratched last 
week. Tomorrow, January 17, 
Milllgan will meet U.T. Martin 
Branch in Memphis. The fol- 
lowing Tuesday, January 20, 
the Buffs will entertain Wes- 
tern Carolina at home. 

Against a much improved 
Georgia Team, the Buffs had 
winners in Tom Williams, Rick 
Schilling, Brett Yonkin, and 
Jerry Teeter. Schilling, a 
freshman, showed much fight 
and also much promise. 

The highlight of. the meet a- 
galnst the Bulldogs was Yon- 
kin's upset victory over last 
year's S.I.W.A. (Southeastern 
Intercollegiate Wrestling As- 
sociation) champ. 

Coach Crowder cited fresh- 
man Baldwin and sophomore 
Yonkon as two ithletes who 
'"don't have it in them to give 
in." Co-captain Teeter looked 
good as usual and freshman Bil- 
ly Johnson pinned his opponent. 
Considering that he was in- 
experienced and out of shape. 
Bill Ellis turned in a good per- 
formance at the heavyweight 
spot in his first match of the 

Last Year's S.I.W.A, runner- 
lUp , the Chattanooga Mocca- 
sins are back full strenth and 
promise to be a top contender 
for this year's title. The big 
factor in. the Buff's loss was 
the fact that 5 out or o ol Mll- 
ligan losers were pinned. 

As Coach Crowder noted, 
however, the Buffs did well con- 
sidering the strength of their 
opponent and the large number 
of short notice substitutes in the 
MUUgan lineup. For example, 
lightweight Virgil "Shrimp" 
DeFrles did not know until the 
day of the match that he-was- 
replacing an Injured Tom >V1I- 
liams. - 

Eric Ellis replaced Karl Pop- 
pa who quit the team to work 
and Monte Baldwin filled in for 
Rick Schilling who suffered 
torn ligaments in practice over 
the holidays. Dave Steward sub- 
stituted for co-capta In Larry 
Kurtz who quit the team, > " 

Winning for the Buffs against 
Chattanooga were Monte Bald-

Secondly, many professors 
were not using the exam week 
schedule, either giving their 
exams early or not at all. This 
left the school open to legal 
criticism In that, in many cases, 
Mllllgan courses were ending 
a week early and thus not ful- 
filling the number of workweeks 
promised In the school's report 
to the Southern Association. 

Thus, it was decided to sim- 
ply add another week of sche- 
duled classes and allow the 
professors to give or not give 
their exams during that final 
week of classes. 

It should be noted that this 
change is not necessarily' fin- 
al as far as future exam ses- 
sions are concerned. The chan-

CLEAN WASH — "Arkie" Snocker, one of many Mllligan men 
who clean the cafeteria trays, places, glasses, with which he is 
working is the dishwasher, now vindicated of all offense. 

Student concerns relieved: 
dishwasher not unsanitary 

Rumors that Mllligan's 
dishwasher is inadequate, In- 
efficient, and unsanitary due 
to a breakdown have been dis- 
claimed by head cook, Don 

The dishwasher did not work 
efficiently for a few days due 
to a lack of hot water, but it is 
in good operating condition 

The present dishwasher Is 
a little small, but it is cap- 
able of handling the load. 

Mllllgan's series of con- 
vocation programs lor the 
second semester will be open- 
ed on February 5 by Mr. Carl 

Mr, Ketcherside is a mem- 
ber of the Church of Christ, 
and is associated with 
upper - east Tennessee's 
Preaching Mission. The mis- 
sion is held annually in John- 
son City during the first week 
of February. 

"If a man is good enough for 
God to receive , he Is not too 
bad for me to accept. I am 
sick and tired of our whole 
sad, sorry and gruesome 
sectarian mess. I never In- 
tend to be a parry to Its 
promotion again, so help me 
God. 1 shall never be used 
as a cat's paw to pull partisan 
chestnuts out of the factional 
fire. And as Patrick Henry 
said, 'If that be treason, make 
the most of it.'" 

Thus has written W. Carl 
Ketcherside. But Mr. Ketch- 
erside has not always accepted 
this [ position. For many years 
he spoke and lectured in favor 
of positions held by that seg- 
ment of the restoration move- 
ment which believes that the 
use of a musical instrument 
in worship services is con- 
trary to the will of God. While 
on a trip to Great Britian and 

Ireland approximately twelve 
years ago he became con- 
vinced that the love and grace 
of God were not limited to the 
Individuals of a particular group 
with in the Church. 
This position has caused him 
to be considered a liheral and 
an outsider by those for whom 
he once spoke. 

Since his change In opinion 
and purpose Mr. Ketcherside 
has become one of the most 
Influential voices in the re- 
storation movement. His per- 
iodical Mission Messenger is 
read, and discussed widely a- 
mong ministers, col lege stu- 
dents, and concerned Christians 
throughout the brotherhood. Its 
perceptive and penetrating 
phrases haved vastly Improved

The dishes first go through 
a pre-rinse which contains a 
chlorinated base. This base 
Is the strongest available. 

They then go into the wash • 
Ing cycle. A strong chlorine 
wash is used at this point also. 
The water temperature is kept 
between 180 degrees F. and 
200 degrees F. at all times. 
The dishes then go through a 
final rinse. 

Students have also com- 
plained of a film on the glas- 
ses and silverware. Mr. 
Greene attributes this film to 
wash. He says that, although 
a film may be left, the dishes 
have been sufficiently dis- 
infected so that there's no 
possibility of germs existing 
on either the glasses or the 

The recent outbreak of flu 
has also brought up the ques- 
tion of cleanliness. Some stu- 
dents were afraid that the 
germs were being spread by 
unsanitary dishes. Mr. Greene 
quickly dispelled this fear by 
assuring that no germ could 
live through the chlorine pre- 
rinse and wash nor the 180 
degree rinse. 

Before registration for the 
second semester begins on ]■ eb- 
ruary 2 and 3, many prepara- 
tions must be made in the busi- 
ness office and in the regis- 
trar's office. 

According to B. j. Moore, 
business manager, the office 
carries on its normal everyday 
business, although they are 
rushed. Their first job Is see- 
ing that work credits, credits, 
and cash receipts are posted. 

The posting Is done by a 
computer named Daisy Mae. 
Daisy computes balances, posts 
them to their proper accounts, 
and stores the knowledge. 

At the moment, Daisy Mae 
is being programmed by the 
Burroughs Company, maker of 
the computer. Mr. Moore, how- 
ever, plans to go to school 
and train to program the com- 
puter himself. 

Daisy cannot make decisions 
as some other computers do, 
but is able to compute balances 
In a matter of seconds. The 
many circuits, which have been 
woven into intricate patterns by 
machines or women, carry 
information to various cells 
where it Is stored until need- 

After posting, the office must 
make sure everything is ready 
lor an orderly flow through 
the registration line. Cashiers 
and people to make invoices are 
appointed so that Invoices will 
be quickly made and approved 
by Mr. Moore. 

Mrs. Fontaine and the re- 

gistrar's office also must pre- 
pare for registration. First, a 
class schedule had to be made 
available to the students. In- 
struction sheets for registra- 
tion procedures must also be 
made for students. 

Yellow registration cards 
must be prepared and passed out 
to the students, if their sched- 
ule has been approved by their 
advisor. These cards will later 
be signed by the advisor and 
returned to the office to be 

The office also has to make 
a room assignment for each 
teacher during the registration 

and this list will be made avail- 
able to the students. 

Class cards must be punched 
which students will obtain from 
professors in whose classes 
they wish to enroll. These 
cards will then be rewraed 
to the registrar's office for 
computer processing. 

The cards will be sent to 
East Tennessee State Uni- 
versity for processing as the 
registrar's office does not have 
a computer. Each student's so- 
cial security number will be 
punched on the card for 
identification purposes. 

IBM DATA — The IBM Machine in the office of Mllligan' s 
registrar Mrs. Phyllis Fontaine (above) Is kept busy punching 
out class cards for computer processes. Mrs. Fontaine is kept 
busy, too.

Nurse Nickolson assists campus 
as ' flu" strikes 200 students 

About two weeks ago the 
"flu" hit Milligan College, as 
It did various other areas of 
the nation, and prevented ap- 
proximately iwo hundred stu- 
dents from attending classes 
last week. 

The epidemic kept student 
and registered nurse Karen 
Nickolson busy both day and 
night. The symptoms she ob- 
served in students were a gen- 
eralized weakness, aches, 
anorexia, deep cough, fever, 
and chills. A few experienced 
nausea and vomiting. 

The outbreak of illness came 
at a rather crucial time - 
just at the end of the semes- 
ter. Many students wished 
they had received the flu shots 
which were available in the 
clinic earlier this fall. 

Because so many students 
were sick, the dormitories be- 
gan to resemble hospital units. 
Almost as many sick trays as 
students left the cafeteria, as 
students carried food and juice 

to their sick friends. 

Although the epidemic was no 
laughing matter, Karen ex- 
perienced several amusing in- 
cidents in caring for the ailing 

One such incident occurred 
when she rushed over to Webb 
Hall to see a patient with a 
fever of over 100 degrees p. 
When she arrived, she dis- 
covered that one of the men 
had read the thermome- 
ter wrong and the student's 
temperature was only 100.-1 
degrees F. 

Very much relieved, Karen 
emerged from Webb just as a 
visitor was entering. Three 
times he asked her, "Is this 
the men's dorm?" She re- 
assured him that it was and 
that she was just visiting the 

Later as Karen resumed her 
studies, she realized that she 
had not informed the visitor 
that she was the nurse. 

During her past year here, 

Karen has learned much about 
Milligan students and their re- 
actions to illnesses. 

Some students will stay In 
bed for anything, and others 
will stay for nothing. 

Karen finds that athletes 
are the hardest to keep in bed. 
Earlier in the year, one of the 
basketball players was injured 
during a game. Karen thought 
he should stay In bed a few 
days, which would mean that he 
must miss the next game. 

Every day the student sent 
her notes, pleading for com- 
passion. One Included a poem 
which read as follows: 

Roses are red, 

Violets are blue, 

If you let me play 

I'll luv you. 

She was also reminded that 
Milligan could lose the game 
because of her orders. I In- 
der such circumstances, Ka- 
ren found it hard to remain 

Subject to approval 

New cafeteria dress code planned 

A new cafeteria dress code, 
subject to approval by ad- 
ministration has been drawn 
up by the Student Council. 

Presently, dress for women 


the BIG BOY 

Johnson City Plaia 

in the cafeteria is restricted 
to dresses during the week 
and slacks for Saturday break- 
fast and lunch. Sunday dresses 
are preferred at the noon meal 
on Sundays. 

Men are allowed to wear 
slacks, blue jeans, Levis, and 
shirts or tee shirts. They are 
not allowed to come in jer- 
seys, sweatpants, or similar 

The new dress code would 
allow women to wear slacks or 



school dress to all meals Mon- 
day through Saturday. 

Men would be allowed to wear 
school dress or. casual wear 
Monday through Saturday, Plain 
white tec shirts, sweatpants or 
other athletic attire, however, 
would not be allowed. 

Sweatshirts would be allowed 
if they are in good condition. 

Sunday noon dress for women 
would consist of Sunday dresses 
and for men, a coat and tie ora 
coat and turtleneck. No tennis 
shoes would be allowed. 

Dress ai supper on Sunday 
would be school dress for both 
men and women. 

The code is still in the plan- 
ning stage at present. It has 
not gone Into effect. 

John Banks, President of the 
Student Council, is to see 
President Johnson a nd the code 
must go through the appropriate 
channel before becoming effective. 

NICHT NIIRSE — Neither rain nor snow nor sleet nor "flu" 
can keep Karen Nickolson from her appointed rounds. Athletes, 
she found, are the hardest to keep in bed during illness.

Mr. Stewart, that "an average

to live six and a half years

Trouble with

The International Society for 
General Semantics has a test 
which will measure your tend- 
ency to jump to conclusions. 

Designed to determine the 
ability to think accurately and 
carefully, this test also works 
as an effective learning device; 
by taking it, students, em- 
ployees and others become a- 
ware of their tendencies to jump 
to conclusions, to over-gen- 
eralize, and to confuse Infer- 
ences with factual Information. 

Just mention that you heard 
about the test In the Associated 
Collegiate press News Round- 
up and 1SGS will send you a free 
sample copy of the test (which 
usually sells for twenty cents 
a copy, minimum order five

Final exams at Mllllgan were 
changed back to a regular exam 
schedule this semester as a 
result of a meeting of repre- 
sentatives of the Academic 
Committee and the student 

On Wednesday, January 14, 
a meeting was held In the 
chapel classroom to discuss 
student dissent over the plan 
for finals this year. 

The Academic Committee 
was represented by Dr. Fife, 
Dr. Wetzel, Dr.Helsabeck.and 
Mr. Neth. Approximately one 
hundred students came to voice 
their opinions. 

As a result of the meeting, 
the, Academic Committee vot- 
ed to set up a regular final 
schedule as In previous years. 
Finals were given from Mon- 
day, January 26, through 
Thursday, January 29. 

The change created problems 
for many faculty members and 
students, but on the whole it 
represented the wishes of the 
majority of the students. 

Dr. Wetzel, associate Pro- 
fessor of philosophy at Mllll- 
gan, seconded the motion for 
the change In the Academic 
Committee. Although he felt 
some students and faculty 
would be Inconvenienced by 
the change. It was effected 
by "a group of responsible 
students who used an establish- 
ed channel, the Student Coun- 
cil, to register a legitimate 

He felt the response "tried 
to fairly represent a majority 
of the students. The Academic 
Committee showed Its willing- 
ness to respond," and the posi- 
tion of the Student Council was 

Dr. Wetzel said further, 
"There may arise situations 

In which the Academic Com- 
mittee finds it necessary to 
give preference to a judgment 
of academic quality rather than 
popular student opinion. Ob- 
viously, there was much mis- 
understanding concerning the 
original Intent of the Academic 
Committee in abolishing exam 

Hence, the question of wheth- 
er or not a last minute change 
should be made became a ques- 
tion of procedure, not academic 
quality. A judgment of pro- 
cedure must be responsible to 
the wishes of the majority of 
the community it serves," 

Professor of Secretary Sci- 
ences, Miss Turbevllle, fell 
that the school must "try to 
establish the schedule In a 
way that the majority affected 
by It want It. Faculty and stu- 
dents are both affected. The 
only fair thing is to please the 

Dr. Patton, Professor of 
Psychology, said that the 
change makes for a "better 
arrangement." He believes 
that In a regular class sche- 
dule a student could have three 
or four exams In one day. 

which could work a * 'real hard- 
ship" on him. Dr. Patton 
"favors the plan we are fol- 
lowing now." 

Mr. Bachman, Assistant 
Professor of Music and Di- 
rector of the choirs has a 
slightly different viewpoint. "1 
feel terribly sorry for stu- 
dents in my classes. My 
students have been screwed 
out of important final lectures. 
I wasn't mad, just kind of hurt 
for the students because they 
are paying for this course." 
Mr. Bachman also felt it was 
"very low class" that the 
faculty was told of the change 
after the students were.

Because of the dissent of a majority of Milligan College students, 
the Academic Committee acted last week to change the final 
examination schedule, the second time that a change had been 
made this semester. But after such commendable conciliatory 
action had been taken, new groans were heard as many of the 
same students who had requested the new schedule felt that 
they had suffered with the change. 

The expression of dissent on the basis of whims rather than 
issues has too often been the hallmark of the student dissent which 
arose in the late fifties. Some students at Ohio University began 
breaking windows In their classrooms as a method of dissent 
against long semesters. The antiquated panty-ralds, finding 
a renaissance among some juveniles in Tennessee's state uni- 
versities, also disgusted an older generation because of its im- 
mature, though symbolic, protest against social ethics. 

As long as the student activist movement Is burdened with 
individuals who cannot be pleased, who act on self-interest and 
not on Judgement, who dissent merely for the sake of dissenting, 
who choose issues of whim rather than of ideal, then the repu- 
tation of meaningful student dissent is continually on the gallows. 

The era of the seventies with its "middle Americans" is not 
going to view student dissent happily. Nor will It cherish its 
proud national heritage of which dissent is a significant part. 
How much poorer this country would be, had it not been for Henry 
David Thoreau who went to jail in protest against the American 
war with Mexico and the nation's support of slavery in the South. 
Is his famous essay on "Civil Disobedience," Thoreau asked 
whether the citizen owes a greater allegiance to bis conscience 
or to his government, and then answered his own question: "The 
only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any 
Ume whaH ihtnk is right." 

The "right" action for many American students today is not 
dissent with examination schedules, length of semesters, or 
panty raids. The issues are death in Viet Nam, pollution of 
the environment, and hunger in the ghettos. If the student activist 
movement continues to choose such items of national emergency, 
then it will eventually inspire the "middle America" rather than 
disenchant the silent majority. Perhaps even civil disobedience 
will become an acceptable mode of dissent. 

Nevertheless, Milligan College does not need civil disobedience 
to change her examination schedule, shorten her semester, or 
waken her women at two o'clock in the morning. Her "establish- 
ment system" is adequately functioning with all channels open. 
But her students need to be aware of national and international 
Issues of ideal rather than of whim. Commitment to these great- 
er causes may eventually demand the action of Henry David 



College editor laments censorship 

The Students MoW What They W/Wt 

'The University Echo' will 
no longer be allowed to print 
"filth" according to a state- 
ment released recently by Uni- 
versity of Tennessee at Chat- 
taooga Chancellor William 
Masterson, The statement was 
the result of a recent issue of 
the student paper which con- 
tained several obscene words 
and remarks. 

After the paper's release, a 
resolution was introduced at 
a meeting of the UTC Publica- 
tions Committee which read 
that "the individual editor will 
consult the faculty adviser on 
all questions of major policy, 
on sensitive Issues and on is-

A form of censorship many 
times results when student 
journalists must check every 
article of importance with a 
faculty adviser or a school 
official. There should be no 
need for censorship in any 
form. Students working on the 

college newspaper should and 
must be responsible in their 
reporting. If this is accom- 
plished, articles will contain 
only the facts as they are — 
as they should be presented to 
the public 

College editors have work- 
ed many long hours since the 
beginning of campus publica- 

lions in an effort to gain the 
respect which is earned 
through responsible and reli- 
able reporting. It is un- 
fortunate that there are per-

journalism who make their own

Canyon lights discourage night activity 

In spite of an irritating lack 
of funds, the administration is 
continuing its efforts to improve 
MiiUgan's campus by installing 
a system of lights in the Canyon 
parking lot. 

The order to Install the lights 
was given over a year ago fol- 
lowing the theft of a battery from 
a car parked in the Canyon.The 
lights are intended to dis- 
courage such vandalism. 

Unfortunately, there are 
other Canyon activities which 
may also be discouraged by the 
new lights.. 

Due to its location, the Canyon 
has never been highly popular 
as a place to park one's car. 
However, its location has helped 
to make it a popular parking 
spot in a sense completelyapart 
from the overnight deposit of 

In considering the desir- 
ability of the new lights, one 
must consider not only their 
merits (discouraging vandal- 
ism) but also their drawbacks. 
In order to do this one must 
determine what value the 
Canyon has to the school as a 
parking area. 

First, the Canyon is close 
to the school — in fact, it is on 
campus. This removes the 
necessity of driving to the 
Laurels or some similar spot. 
One may. If he wants, use Can- 
yon faciiitieswiihouimovinghis 
car at all. When roads are icy 
this nearness becomes an im- 
portant safety factor. 

Second, the Canyon is se- 
cluded without being too se- 
cluded. This seclusion is an 
advantage both in that it dis- 
courages too much involve- 
ment (Its effectiveness in this 
area is open to question) and in 
that help is available should 
anyone (usually Officer Rector) 
try to molest the participants. 

Third, and perhaps most con- 
venient, the Canyon is very near 
Seeger Memorial Chapel, in 
case a couple does become too 

For these reasons, the Can- 
yon would seem to be a val- 
uable aid to the students of Mil- 
ligan as they strive to har- 
monize the physical and spirit- 
ual aspects of their natures. 
This may be worth the price of 
a car battery or two. 

If the lights were not wired 
into the same circuit that con- 
trols all other outside lights on 
campus, they might be timed in 
such a way that they could dis- 
courage vandalism only after 
there are no students discour- 
aging it by their presence. 

Not only could the lights not 
interfere with parking, they 

could be an aid if they were 
timed to come on at 10:25 on 
weeknights and 11:55 on Fri- 
day and Saturday nights. At 
least one college official sup- 
ports this plan, although, as 
President Johnson has pointed 
out, it might be better for the 
students to learn to rely on 
themselves in such matters. 
Perhaps some of these sug- 
gestions may be acted on If 
finances allow. Until they are, 
one must hope that President 
Johnson Is correct in feeling 
that the lights will not be bright 
enough to reduce the value of 
the Canyon as a parking loca- 
tion. If they are too bright, 
there is always the lot behind 
Hopwood — also close to cam- 
pus, popular, and even next 
to a church. STEVE KNOWLES

The Responsibility of Command 

Recently, much attention has 
been drawn to the massacre at 
My Lai, South Vietnam. Many 
people say that we should over- 
look the atrocity as Just one 
more senseless act In an al- 
ready senseless war. Some say 
It was a Just act because It 
dlsiroyed "enemies". (Will 
someone please explain how an 
Infant child can be considered 
an enemy?) Some believe that 
Lieutenant Cally should take 
the full responsibility for the 
crime of mass murder. 

The people who hold these 
views are lacking In the knowl- 
edge oi a similar case tried 
some twenty-five years ago. 
If the decision reached at that 
trial and backed up by a ma- 
jority decision of the United 
States Supreme Court were to 
be applied, the person whowould 
be held accountable would be 
General Cralghton Abrams, 
overall United States Com- 
mander In Vlet-Naml Sound 
radical? a look at "Military 
Justice" as It works In the 
above mentioned case would 
be helpful. 

' On October 29, 1945, Tomo- 
, yukl Yamashlta, General of the 
Imperial Japanese Army and 
recently surrendered Com- 
mander of Japanese Army 
i forces In the Philippines, was 
brought to trial by the Allies 
' In Manila. There were 123 sep- 
arate charges of crimes In- 
volving the deaths of 57,000 
people. He had 30 days to pre- 
pare a defense. All rules com- 
monly deemed as essential by 
the Anglo- American system of 
Jurisprudence, dealing with the 
rejection of hearsay testimony 
were waived. (Even the test- 
\ imony of third and fourth-hand 
| Informants was admitted I) Upon 
; cross examination by defense 
■ counsel, several of the witness 
1 for the prosecution as well as 
i the validity of their testimonies 
[ were found to be Inaccurate. 
1 Never the less, on December 
7, 1945, the death sentence 
i was pronounced. Appeal was 
I made to the United States Sup- 
reme Court and the decision 
'was upheld. At 3:27 a.m. on 
February 23, 1946, General Ya~ 
mashitawasexecuted bv hanging. 

The true essence of the Ya- 
mashlta case fs the question 
of command responsibility, is 
the commander resposlble for 
every act by every man under 
hfs command or not? 

The glossed-over facts of 
the Yamashita case lead one to 
question the Integrity of the 
military tribunal which tried the 
case and the apparent lack of 
common sense of the court 
that reviewed the trlbunal'sde- 

FACT #1: At all times. 
General Yamashlta had ordered 
civilian populations and pris- 

oners of war to be humanely 

FACT ^2: Most of the charges 
stemmed from the defense of 
Manila which had been accom- 
plished by some 16,000 naval 
troops under the command of 
General lwabachl, NOT General 

FACT #3: Because he still 
has supplies stored within Man- 
ila and had no way to remove 
them he could not declare the 
city a s "open." 

FACT #4: General Yamas- 
hlta hod been In command In 
the Philippines Just 9 days when 
American forces attacked 

FACT #5: When the pros- 
ecution failed to prove that 
he had ordered the atrocities, 
it charged that he failed to care. 

FACT #6: He was charged 
with atrocity In the Malayan 
Campaign of 1941-1942. He had 
3 divisions. The Imperial 
Guards Division butchered 200 
Australian wounded and many 
others. They continually dis- 
obeyed General Yamashlta's 
direct commands. He removed 
their commander, sent him to 
Japan and disgraced the unit 
in the eyes of the Army. 

FACT fl: Because of his 
attitude. General Tojo removed 
him from command In Malaya 
and sent hi m to Manchuria, not 
even allowing him to report 
to Tokyo first. From Man- 
churia, he was sent to the 
Philippines just before the in- 
vasion. He was not given time 
to investigate atrocities in Ma- 
laya nor could he seek for 
answers in Toyko. He had 
neither time nor communica- 
tions nor means ai his dis- 
posal to investigate conditions 
in the Philippines. 

Yet General Yamahsita was 
hung as a war criminal. Just- 
ices Ruledge and Murphy of the 
Supreme Court, in their strong 
dissent, stated; "He was not 
charged with participating in, 
condoning or ordering atro- 
cities. Not even knowledge of 
the crimes was attributed to 
him. It was simply alleged that 
he unlawfully disregarded and 
failed to discharge his duty as 
commander to control the oper- 
ations of the members of his 

command . 

The recorded annals of war- 
fare and the established prin- 
ciples of international law form 
not the slightest precedent for 
such a charge." 

Yet General Yamashlta was 
executed as a war crl mlna I . 

It seems strange that the 
United States would establish 
such a precedent and not ap- 
ply It all around. By the de- 
cision of the military struc- 
ture and the U.S. Supreme 
Court, a commanding officer is 
responsible for the unlawful 
acts committed by those under 
him. If this Is correct, then 
General Cralghton Ahrams Is 
essentially as guilty as was 
General Yamshlta. 

Will General Abrams betried 
and executed like General Ya- 
mashlta? Of course not I 

Will the Supreme Court re- 
verse the decision of 25 years 
ago and exonerate an Innocent 
man? I seriously doubt It. 

But such Illuminating bril- 
liance gives one cause to won- 
der at the state of a nation 
with two sets of laws: one 
for enemies (even vanquished 
ones) and one for its own

ed the impression that the Aca- 
demic Committee had ridden 
"rougb-shod" over student 
opinion; this was certainly not 
the case. 

As Dr. Wetzel explained, the 
decision to abolish exam week 
was one of many the committee 
had to make. This decision was 
not referred elsewhere be- 
cause it was not thought nec- 
essary. The committee ap- 
parently did not realize that 
students felt so keenly about 
the Issue. 

That the situation was a slight 
case of misjudgment rather 
than ill motive was conclusive- 
ly proven by the committee's 
quick response in changing 
the decision. 

1 think students sometimes 
fall too quickly Into the hab- 
it of catagori^lng admin- 
istration officials as autocra- 
tic rulers Intent on control- 
ing the students rather than 
helping them. 

This is especially easy to 
do when the administration has 
just made a decision that runs 
counter to student opinion. 

I think Dr. Fife spoke well 
at the Open Forum Convoca- 
tion when he reminded the stu- 
dents that progress comes 
easiest when suspicion and dis- 
trust have been put In the back- 

Certainly this should not be 
hard to do In light of the con-

Tennessee advances 

KNOXVILLE --Business and 
economic activity In Tennessee 
will hold Its own during 1970, 
but the average Tennessean 
will be only a little better off 
financially this year than 
he was in 1969, a University 
of Tennessee report predicted 

The report, by Dr. Kenneth 
E. Quindry and George Kron- 
bach of the U-T Center for 
Business and Economic Re- 
search, said growth In Ten- 
nessee personal income is ex- 
pected, at best, only to equal 
the nation's growth. 

A projected 5.5 per cent in- 
crease in personal income in 
1970 will be reduced, by In- 
flation, to a real income growth 
of only 2 to 2,5 per cent, the 
report said, and higher per- 
sonal taxes will further 
decrease real growth. 

"In the final analysis, the 
average Tennessee citizen will 
be only a little better off in 
1970 than he was in 1969", 
the report said. 

Tennessee's growth in plant 
capacity and in physical output 
of goods and services will be 
hard-pressed to equal the na- 
tional average, the report said. 
It added that growth in physi- 
cal output will be about 2 per 
cent, with price increases of 3 

to 3.5 per cent indicated In 
Tennessee and nationally. 

One key element cited bythe 
report as affecting output dur- 
ing 1970 is a leveling off of 
the growth of the labor force. 

"In the absence of large im- 
migration, Tennessee seems to 
have entered a period in which 

growth in its work force may 
lag behind national growth," the 
report said. 

"As a result of the relative- 
ly slow-growing labor force and 
the expected full employment 
level, the labor situation will 
remain tight," the report said.

FOND ADIEU — <l-r) Brenda Varner, Katby Polenek, and 
Paula Bullock as new members of the STAMPEDE staff bid a 
tearful good-bye Darryl Brooks who must educate by the spoken 
word rather than by the written word next semester. The STAM- 
PEDE will greatly miss Darryl's creativity but cheerfully wel- 
comes the three additional women to the staff. 


lious colleges defended 

vital contemporary experience 

The conventional view of the 
small religious colleges today 
is that they are backwater In- 
stitutions. But are they? Even 
with all their faults, do the 
"brotherhood" and "sister- 
hood' colleges represent a 
backwater? Are we ready to 
throw away what could become 
Invaluable assets to our 
society? Conceivably, the re- 
ligious colleges are precisely 
what must be saved in our 
higher education. They are 
what must be transformed into 
real communities. 

The essential purpose of the 
college, as It emerged in our 
American history, was to form, 
strengthen, clarify, prepare. 
We did not perhaps realize, 
perhaps we could not have 
jealized, that a limit on the 
size of this Institution was an 
essential of its functions. We 
realize that now, however, with 
the appearance of the science 
and knowledge factories known 
as universities and state col- 
leges. America is groping 
toward a reversal of this uni- 
versal escalatlonlsm that has 
nearly ruined us. 

It is fortunate that we have 
many relatlOely small colleges 
and that they are still associat- 
ed in one way or another, and 
to one degree or another, with 
religion. Today, when the de- 
mand for purpose, for a moral- 
ity and a meaning has become 
crucial, the survival of so 
many small colleges in 
America Is a remarkable op-

dustry, everywhere - is going 
bust. It has become our curse. 

The "business' of the college 
must be living-wlth in-mean- 
ing, and loving. We must find 
time to know each other. It 
is how to live together in each 
other's presence that is the 
great undertaking because that 
is related to the learning of 
how to love. 

The life of an adult should 
begin In a meaning-seeking 
community, and it should, 
wherever possible, end in such 
a community. The community 
of the youth moving into adult- 
hood and the community of the 
old who have retired should, 
each In its properway, be pair- 
ed. This Is the South Asian 
concept of the meaningful life 
-les extremes se touchent - 
the beginning and the end should 
be related. 

Man shallnotfindfullfillment 
except when his last years are 
linked to his early years and 
when there is, within limits 
of the possible, a degree of 
wholeness. Life is the story 
of that wholeness developing. 
The end controls the beginning 
if there is to be meaning. Not 
in dogma but in organic, grow- 
ing wholeness is the meaning. 
One can hope that the concept 
of graduation will disappear. 
We must net "graduate." We 
must grow. 

The religious college must 
be a community. The college 
must be an educational in- 
stitution In the sense of mental 
development, yes. But the col- 
lege must become again what 
colleges were orlginallyfound- 
ed to be, houses of God. That 
means, above all, not houses 
where you study religion and 
the nature of God and so on, 
but houses where, each week, 
you live with, experience, and 
draw hesitantly, humanly 
gropingly, a little nearer to 
the reality that will remain. 

Religion Is more lived than 
known. We achieve, or 
partially achieve, awareness of 
God. As we grow in power to 
love, we become more aware ol 
God. But God is transcen- 

dental. Spiritual exercises are 
like physical exercises; they 
strengthen the spiritual mus- 
cles. It is the living. That is 
why monasticism came into 
being. We love and we seek 
to break through to more 
awareness of God, not as idea 
but as experience. Absolutes- 
perhaps there is only one - 
can only be experienced, not 

We need a revolution. All 
social revolutions - Marxist or 
otherwise - are collectivism 
Only in the victory over the 
individual Is liberation In 
brotherhood achieved. Chris- 
tianity, like Buddhism, Is an 
unending revolution. 

We can certainly know, read, 
here about that central fact of 
the human undertaking. Butwe 
have to live it. We must live 
it as brothers of the common 
life, as sisters of the common 
life. And then comes the great 
school, the family. The family 
was also the beginning. 

Then we shall come, I pray 
to God, to the old-age com- 
mon life. 

What is revolution? It is 
that humanity, saturated with 
love of human beings, should 
go arm-in-arm home to the 
living God. 

We very much need the re- 
ligious college: Jewish, Catho- 
lic, Quaker, Methodist, what- 
not. We need the actual col- 
lege, two-year, four-year. We 
must keep It alive. It must 
flourish, not grow bit but grow 

We must have colleges where 
some young people will learn to 
live with the realization that 
the first duty of man Is not 
success, no matter what two 
hundred million blasphemers 
keep shouting and insisting on.

Milllgan's Matmen faced 
Western Carolina on uie road 
last Tuesday after losing to the 
same Western Carolina team 
25-21, defeating Tennessee at 
Martin 28-14, and losing to 
Maryville 21-16. 

Tom Williams won all three 
of his matches in the 118 lb. 
class. He won his match against 
Western Carolina by forfeit. 
He defeated his Martin opponent

Tom Hickok pinned his 
Western Carolina opponent at 
:40 seconds of the second per- 
iod. He drew in his match 
against the Maryvllle 126 
pounder with the score 2-2. 

At present , Milligan does 
not have a healthy 134 pounder. 
Because of this problem, the 
Buffs have forfeited five points 
per match at this weight. Two 
matches have been lost be- 
cause of these forfeits. 

Monte Baldwin who is wrest- 
ling at 142 pounds defeated his 
opponent from Western Caro-

Dr. Read comments on two-year old humanities program 

STAMPEDE: Now that the 
Humanities pjogram is in 
second year of operation, do 
you (eel that it accomplishing 
what It was designed to do? 

Dr. Read: Not yet. How- 
ever, I do (eel that In a num- 
ber of areas we have made 
significant progress. We have, 
for example, exliminated some 
of our worst errors of last 
year; and I think we generally 
have a better sense ol what 
we are trying to do. 

STAMPEDE: Do you feel 
that the student reaction is 

Dr. Read; That is somewhat 
difficult to determine. Last 
year, because we needed In- 
formation rapidly we were 
probably more open and more 
willing to listen to criticism. 

In fact, we asked for it. This 
year, this has not been as true. 
There has not been as much 

criticism, but then again we 
have not been as open to it. 
STAMPEDE: It has been 
suggested by some that the 
program is stody and certain- 
ly not as Innovative as a num- 
ber of programs of a similar 

Dr Read: Actually, It Is a 
rather conservative program. 1 

may as well confess at this 
point, despite the fact that It 
will endanger my image 
as campus radical, that on 
educational matters I tend 
more and more to side with 
old-line conservatives like 
Russel Kirk. It is a great 
temptation to Institute a pro- 
gram that emphasized only 

INTERVIEW PRESSURE - Dr. Ira Read, chairman of the 
humanities program, proved to be no stool pigeon as a STAMPEDE 
reporter asked him a few inquiring questions abouthls department. 
His answers were Incisive; neither is he a sitting duck. 

contemporary events and 
ideas. On the other hand, 
there is really only so much 
a person can say about des- 
pair and alienation. 

The problems ol race, war, 
environmental quality, and stu- 
dent unrest are vital questions 
in our generation and they will 
be treated in the fourth semes- 
ter of the program, but there 
is only so much that can be 
said that has any real mean- 
ing. One can talk and read 
about ghettos for years, but 
the more you study the more 
you begin to get back to some 
af the basic questions that have 
puzzled men for centuries, 
such as the relation ol man 
and nature, the nature of man, 
the nature ol God, the Ideal 
society, and all of the other 
great issues. 

After all, the question of 
man's relationship to society, 
for example, is faced by Anti- 
gone, Socrates, Jesus Christ, 
Martin Luther, Sir Thomas 
More, and a host of others that 
are studied in the first two 

STAMPEDE: Are grades 
really so low In Hua 
really so low in Humanities 
as one hears? 

Dr. Read: Theaveragegrade 
for a freshman at a qualify 
school Is about 1.6, ours was 
about the same. At the sopho- 
more level, the average Is 
about 2.0, ours Is slightly high- 

STAMPEDE: Have the stu- 
dents really improved in the 
Humanities program and how 
would you compare this to im- 
provement under the old pro- 

Dr. Read: The improve- 
ment has been great, collecti- 
vely and individually. ] can- 
not really make a comparison 
to the old program, since I 
am new to the school, but we 
have had assurances from 
some quarters that the present 
program seems to be doing 
a better job. 

STAMPEDE: What changes 
do you think you will be mak- 
ing in the Humanities program? 

Dr. Read; Theoretically, I 
only implement staff decisions, 
but my guess is that there 
will be no major changes for

next year. We will be chang- 
ing some books, partly be- 
cause the staff gets bored us- 
ing the same books year after 
year, partly because we find 
better books, and partly 
because we make some mis- 
takes. For example, because a 
stupid mistake on my part, we 
failed to emphasize sufficiently 
Dostoyevsky's, The Brothers 

We are looking for some- 
thing better to use for art and 
music, something better for 
anthropology, and especially 
some better Introduction to the 
whole idea of a Christian 
liberal arts education. Wewill 
have to have some new per- 
sonnel, at least on a temporary 

STAMPEDE: What about the 
following years. Is there any 
long range plan for the develop- 
ment of the program? 

Dr. Read; Most of this is 
simply guess work, and much 
of it depends on future develop- 
ments for the entire college. 
There are a number of things 
we would like to do in the 
Humanities, but there is after 
all a limited amount that can 
be done. I think, for example, 
that within five year we are 
going to be forced to give 
serious attention to the film. 
This could be done within the 
Humanities or It could be done 
elsewhere. What we do, in that 
particular case, depends on 

what is done or not done else- 

Or, If the school should go 
to twelve hundred students as 
projected, we would have to 
make radical changes Decause 
this would mean a freshman 
class of about four hundred fifty 
and there Is no good place to 
put that many students. 

STAMPEDE*. What actually 
Is the Humanities 100 pro- 

Dr. Read: I am extremely 
sorry that the nickname "dumb 
Humanities" got started for 
this program. Some of the stu- 
dents in Humanities 100 are 
simply late developers who did 
not get adequate high school 
preparations. Others simply 
went to high schools that are 

We would prefer that more 
students were In the program, 
even though itwould mean going 
to summer school one summer 
if they were to graduate In four 

A lot of people could profit 
from Humanities 100: the 
administration, the faculty, 
even the Stampede staff. 

STAMPEDE: You have gone 
to meddling. 

Dr. Read: Sorry about that. 
Before you leave, would you 
like to hear my opinions on all 
the great issues that confront 
Milllgan and mankind?

Eliminates "lame cluck' 

Schedule change in 70-71' 

For several reasons, Mllll- 
gan students will find a change 
In next year's calendar. 

According to Dr. Robert Wet- 
zel, one of the main reasons 
for the change was the "lame 
duck" period berween Christ- 
mas holidays and final exam 
week. OverChrlstmas vacation. 
Dr. Wetzel said, students com- 
pletely forget classes. 

After returning, the students 
must re - orientate themselves

to classes. The first week the 
student begins to get used to 
college life again. The second 
week, worries about finals soon 
to begin, and the third week 
linals take place. 

The registrar's office and the 
business office are also under 
pressure during this time. The 
weekend between semesters, 
the business office must make 
out all paychecks, bring all stu- 
dent accounts up to date, and 
post all this Information. 

The registrar's office must 
receive the students' grades 
on Friday, take them to East 
Tennessee State University for 
computer processing, and have 
them ready for Dean Oakes to 
review on Saturday. This year 
the computer broke down, the 
registrar, Mrs. Phyllis Fon- 
taine, had to spend half the 
night getting the grades pro- 

Another advantage to the new 
calendar is the elimination of 
the hassle that was present 
during final week this year. 
Final exams will be scheduled 
the last week of the semester 
and teachers may give exams 
or lecture as they wish. 

It will be easier for students 
wishing to go home. They will 
be able to leave after their 
finals and won't have to worry 
about returning the same week- 
end as during semester break 
this year. 

Mill lgan students will also 
finish earlier In the spring 
and be better able to obtain 

summer Jobs. They will also 
have more time at Christmas 
to work. 

There was an alternative to 
the new calendar which was 
discarded because of the red 
tape which would be Involved. 
Semesters would be broken Into 
a short fall semester ending 
before Christmas and a long 
spring semester. But the allot- 
ting of hours of credit for such 
semesters would be difficult 
to determine. 

Many colleges have begun 
to end their semester before 
Christmas. While at the South- 
ern Association of Colleges, 
Dean Oakes and Dr. Wetzel at- 
tended a meeting In which the 
audience was asked how many 
colleges were using this sys- 
tem. The majority of -he col- 
leges represented are now using 
or are planning to use the sys- 

The new calendar does have 
disadvantages. These involve 
the summer school program. 
Summer school will be held 2 
weeks after spring semester 
ends and will run until 2 weeks 
before fall semester begins. 

Summer school will end Au- 
gust 2 1 and freshmen begin 
coming into the dorms August 
22. This will cause somewhat 
of a rush. 

The change could have been 
put off until the 1971-72 school 
year, but when this Idea was 
presented to theStudentCouncll 
and faculty, it was voted to have 
the change made this year.

Jnpopular concert series not faculty's fault 

MJlllgan's 1969-70 Concen 
rles has been disappointing 
. far this year, but Dr. 
oorehouse, a member of the 
jncert Committee, is optlm- 
tlc about the coming con- 
ns, this spring. 
The Concert Committee, Dr. 
oorehouse explained, work- 
g on a budget of $8000, has 
i far presented only two con- 
:rts and an art exhibit. On 
jvember 29, the BOOK OF 
>B was presented at a cost 

$1750, and Mr. Robert Zlm- 
er of the Cleveland Orches- 
a was here earlier at a cost 


The Tennessee Arts Com- 
ission's art exhibit was dis- 
ayed in lower Seeger at a 
,st of $200. 
Milligan "missed something 

October" as there is usual- 

a pop concert in that month. 
ie concert was not present- 
,1 as a result of "indecision 
i the part of the Student Coun- 
1." said Dr. Moorehouse. 
The Student Council is al- 
tted $2000 of the Concert 
tries' (8000, to use on a 
ncert of their choosing. The 
unci! chose a group over 

NICEF appeal 

UN1CEF— The United States 
>inmittee for the United Na- 
ms Children's Fund had 1s- 
ed a nationwide appeal for 
bile contributions to help sup- 
rt a massive rehabilitation 
ogram in postwar Nigeria- 
After a personal inspection 
ip to Nigeria, Mr. H.R. La- 
ulsse, UNICEF's executive 
rector, confirmed earlier re- 
rts that severe malnutrition 
d the danger of major epide- 
Ics constitute a continuing 
real to the existence of mll- 
iqs of children in the former 
vil war zone. Despite the 
nnesty and the best efforts

their budget, and afterwards 
could not decide on another 
group. They then decided to 
wait until spring to make their 
selection, the Boxtops. 

A new aspect of the Con- 
cert series this year is that 
the committee is working in 
conjunction with the Johnson 
City Community Concen As- 
sociation to bring the Cama- 
rada Singers here. They will 
be presented on Sunday, March 
1, ax a Joint cost of $2500. 
The Committee Is paying $1000 
and furnishing the building, 
while the Johnson City Associa 
tion is paying $1500. 

The Johnson City Commun- 
ity Concert Association has 
wanted to work with Mllllgan's 
Concert Committee before. 
The Concert Committee want- 

ed to help them and also to 
promote the good will of the 
Johnson City community to- 
wards Milligan. 

A third presentation of the 
concen series this spring will 
be Mr. George Shirley on Apr- 
il 16. Mr. Shirley, a lead ten- 
or with the Metropolitan Op- 
era, is being brought here at 
a cost of $2250. 

To insure a good attendance 
at the Shirley concen, another 
new idea is being tried by the 
Concert Committee. Mr. Shir- 
ley will perform at an even- 
ing convocation, with attend- 
ance required. Convocation will 
not be held that Thursday morn- 

The concen series this vear 
has been quite Irregular and 
some what disappointing be- 

cause of the many new ideas 
being tried. The three main 
new Id^ as are the addition of 
an an exhibit, the evening con- 
vocation, and working with the 
Johnson City Community Con- 
cen Association. 

In the recent past of the Con- 
cen Series concerts have not 
been well attended. In an ef- 
fort to boost attendance, the 
Concen Committee has tried 
this year to present fewer 
concerts on a grander scale. 

In past years the policy has 
been to present many con- 
certs of lesser-known art- 

There was ' 'a feeling that 
there were too many concerts, 
but not big enough attractions." 

According to Dr. Moore- 
bouse the disappointing con- 
cen schedule this year was 
really "no one's fault." It 
was result of theConcertCom- 
mittee's "trying to be in- 
novative and creative." 

Students set speed record: 
register in only 9 hours 

Business Manager B. J, 
Moore felt that registration 
proceeded more quickly this 
semester than ever before with 
the total time for registration 
being about 9 hours and with 
approximately 100 students be- 
ing registered per hour. 

Mr. Moore stated that if 
iunds were available to mech- 
anize registration, the entire 
student body would have their 
schedules set up in 15 min- 
utes. This, however, would 
cause a problem for the stu- 
dent who was signed up for the 
wrong class. 

Mechanization would also 
'ake away the personal con- 
tact now found at registration. 
Students would become num- 
bers instead of people. 

A process of registering that 
often slows the student down 
Is that of paying his bill. Un- 
like universities, Milligan does 
not require the student to pay 
all of his bill at once; but 
every student must see Mr. 
Moore and if a student has 
a financial problem everyone 
else Is slowed down because 
of it. 

Mr. Moore hopes to speed 
this up nexi semester by hav- 
ing someone aid him in the 
financial line. He agreed that 

social exprissioi center

pre registration could be step- 
ped up , but there are still 
a lot of changes to be made. 
Registration at Milligan may 
seem slow to the Impatient 
student, but clock-wise it Is 
becoming faster each semes-

Open Housing 

After witnessing the limited success of last Sunday's open house 
In Pardee Hall and remembering past afternoon visits inside the 
women's dormitories, we suggest an extension of such campus hos- 

Milllgan College is not sympathetic to the trend in campus living 
which includes coeducational dormitories, nor does she embrace 
the idea of extensive evening parietal hours wiib socializing behind 
closed doors. Instead, the tradition has been merely to open the 
rooms of each dormitory once a year for inspection by other mem- 
bers of the college community rather than only by the head resident. 
Even so, a yearly open house does provide an occasional opportunity 
for students to practice the social art of proper hosting and hostess- 

We advocate extending open house in each dormitory to twice a 
semester, four times a year. This type of "lntervlsitatlon" lends 
itself favorably to the atmosphere of a small, religious college 
which wishes to maintain an admirable dignity among Its student 
bodv within a contemporary social setting. But with more visita- 
tions' come more "family" spirit, more social experiences, more 
opportunity for faculty-student relations ('Tf only the faculty would 
have responded to our invitation," lamented Pardee president 
Cary Alber after the dormitory's one open house this year had end- 

Open. House /lore rVeauermu : 

The Silent Minority 

The student activists who once shouted "Hey, hey, L.B.J., how 
many kids did you kill today" are now crying out against environ- 
mental control, not military-industrial control. After the sit-ins, 
the teacb-ins, the McCarthy campaign, the Chicago demonstration, 
and the Washington moratorium, the unprolitable results have en- 
couraged a change of ambition. But though pollution Is an area well- 
worthy of protest, the thinning of dissent to President Nixon's stub- 
born continuation of American intervention in the Vietnamese civil 
war leaves an unfortunate vacuum. 

Nineteen thousand men are scheduled to be drafted In March. 
Informed sources indicate 300,000 U.S. troops will be in Vietnam 
by the first of next year and only 50,000 fewer by January, 1972. 
The cost of the war for fiscal 1970 stands at $23.2 billion. A high 
Vietnamese official quoted in a newly released report to the Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee stated, 'The talk in Saigon among 
Vietnamese as well as Americans Is in terms ol keeping some 
250,000 troops there for years." 

Meanwhile, Vietnami nation Is pitched in high-gear as from a 
national advertising agency. "A great public -relations success" 
according to Senator Goodell; states Senator Hughes, "simply an 
extension of Johnson's foreign policy ... it will perpetuate our 
Involvement." The American public Is buying the Nixon promotion 
with the eagerness of a housewife purchasing a new detergent to 
end her dingy gray laundry. Over 65% percent of the country approves 
of the way the administration is handling the situation in Vietnam. 

If peace hinges on the vocal urging ofa silent majority, then it will 
never come to the prospering military-industrial complex. The dis- 
senting minority, now nearly silent also, threatens toglve Mr. Nixon 
unchallenged authority to continue the war effort. If America becomes 
a nation of silence, can any quality of vocal leadership prevail? 

_. Speaking of 

Our Dying World 

by Paul M. Makuch _ 

A s seen from the black 
depths of space, the earth is 
a lovely blue and white strip- 
ed island in the archipelago 
of the planets. It's quite uni- 
que, with its surface wetted 
by water, cushioned by green- 
ery and fanned by air. Close 
up - especially the land mass 
occupied by the United States 
presents a far different pic- 
ture. For example, fishermen 
in Colorado cast for trout 
amid beer cans, and debris 
falling into the Eagle River 
from an open dump on the bank; 
American women carry in their 
breasts milk that is anywhere 
from three to ten times more 
of the pesticide DDT than the 
federal government allows In 
dairy milk. 

Man emerged from World 
War II armed with nuclear 
power that soon gave blm the 
capacity to end all human life. 
The population explosion fol- 
lowed soon after, growing at 
a rate that could threaten 
disaster on a global scale. 
And now he has come face 
to face with another man- 
made peril, the poisoning of 
his natural environment with 
noxious chemicals, garbage, 
fumes, noise, sewage, ugliness, 
and * over-population. 

For every American, en- 
vironmental decay has become 
a personal experience. What 
he cannot see, hear, smell, 
taste and touch himself, he 
discovers in a new sort of 
obituary within the dally press 




Campus pol lution 

There are many problems In 
our contemporary situation 
which may seem too big for 
us, or too far away, or too 
much beyond our control, but 
the appearance of our campus 
Is not. Its beauty and clean- 
liness is our responsibility. 
This Is where we live and the 
house-keeping necessary to 
keep it attractive, cheerful, 
and healthful ought to be per- 
formed gladly as a matter of 
community pride. A family Is 
known, to a large degree, by 
the appearance of Its home 
surroundings. What must our 
neighbors and visitors think 
of us? 

Our campus is cut to pieces 
by footpaths (some of which 
parallel the sidewalks), park- 
ing restrictions are ignored, 
some students drive their cars 
across the campus leaving ruts 
In the grass, campus light 
globes are repeatedly broken, 
candy wrappers and cold 
drink cups litter the area in 
all directions from the Student 
Union Building, soft drink bot- 
tles and cans are to be seen 
everywhere {the other morn- 
ing 1 counted 17 between Par- 
dee and the tennis courts ), 
cigarette buns Utter the en- 
trances to the administration 
building, the library, the cha- 
pel, the dining hall, and the 
dormitories, the walls and desk 
chairs of our classrooms are 
engraved with the names and 
mental agonies of our students, 
what was once "beautiful Buf- 
falo Creek" has become a 
garbage dump, our athletic 
field and the "Canyon" have 
become places referred to 
with raised eyebrows, and 
many other signs of our in- 
different house-keeping and 
poor taste are in evidence. 
My point Is this: If we, as 
young, vigorous, idealistic ad- 
ults will show no pride in or 
concern of our environment, 
then who should? it would be 
utterly Impossible for the my- 
thical "they" to keep ourcam- 

pus In sparkling condition, but 
it would be easy for "us" to 
do so. 

Perhaps if some campus or- 
ganization would take the lead 
the entire student body might 
rise to the challenge. (Would 
it be too much to hope that 
even some of the faculty and 
staff might do the same?}

and viewing media. A few years 
ago - Lake Erie died: acidic 
water from surrounding fac- 
tories have virtually killed 
every form of life except sluge 
worms and a mutant of the 
carp thai has adjusted to liv- 
ing off poison. 

President Nixon has em- 
braced the environment as a 
major project for the 1970's. 
In his State of the Union add- 
ress he said: ' 'Clean air, 
clean water, open spaces — 
these should be once again the 
birthright of every American: 
.... If we act now — they 
can be." 

To fight air pollution, Mr. 
Nixon said he would propose 
to Congress the most com- 
prehensible and costly pro- 
gram in the nation's history 
($106 millon). He singled out 
the automobile as the worst 
polluter. (200 million tons are 
poured into the air each year). 
To combat water pollution he 
made a specific money re- 
ference "A $10 billion na- 
tionwide clear water pro- 
gram to put modern munici- 
pal -waste-treatment plants' ' 
where needed. 

For solid waste disposal, 
the administration is asking 
$14 Million sum, essentially 
the same as last year's ap- 

In the meantime, pollution 
goes on; for example, rivers- 
some of which are most fam- 
iliar to us. The Ohio, the 
Houston slip, the Buffalo, the 
Passic and the Arthur Kill 
(both in New Jersey) and the 
Escambia in Florida are still 
being polluted. 

So far man has had bis 
Age of Exploration, his Age 
of Exploitation and now he 
faces the Age of Conserva- 
tion. Can we face the chal- 
lenge? It seems Ironic but 
the real specter that pol- 
lution casts over man's fut- 
ure Is not the extinction of 
Homo Sapiens but his muta- 
tion into some human equiva- 
lent of the carp now lurking 
In Lake Erie's fetid depths, 
living off poison.

Economy of Murder 

When the air Is Jusi right, 
one can smell the coal mines 
of Appalachla here at Mll- 
llgan. The distance does not 
diminish the overpowering a- 
spect of the odor. The death- 
like stench strongly reminds 
one that coal la derived from 
long-decayed plant and animal 
matter, and It seems that much 
human blood stains the coal 
mines. It is the blood of vio- 

On the night of December 
31,1969, Joseph Yablonski, his 
wife, and daughter were mur- 
dered by gunfire as they slept. 
Within a week of the crime's 
discovery, three men were ar- 
rested and charged with the 
murders. Later, the wife of 
one of the three was indicted 
by a federal Grand Jury in 
Cleveland, Ohio, for com- 

The crime was committed 
In Pennsylvania. The Grand 
Jury Investigating the crime 
Is in Ohio. Yet part of the 
crime Involves East Ten- 
nessee also, the town of La 
Follette, Tennessee, in par- 

The town has a United Mine 
Workers local. Its president's 
son-in-law, as well as his 
daughter, Is one of the ac- 
cused murderers. One of the 
pistols used in the commis- 
sion of the crime was stolen 
from a doctor in that town.

Tony Boyle, UMW president 
during the recent election in 
which he was opposed by Jack 

But why would anyone want to 
murder Jack Yablonski? 

The answer Is sim- 
ple: economics. 

Yablonski was part of a group 
that sought to increase safety 
measures in the mines. Since 
1900, there have been 33 major 
disasters In the nation's coal 
mines that have claimed the 
lives of almost 40,000 miners. 
Add to this figure the trem- 
endous number of men who 


so more 
will live 


have died from "Black Lung** 
disease, tuberculosis, em- 
physema and other diseases 
picked up in the mines. It 
shows mining to be a very 
costly business from the stand- 
point of spent lives. Yablon- 
skl's group sought to help the 
miners by increasing safety 
measures. Only union back- 
ing could put such measures 
through Congress so Jack Yab- 
lonski ran for the UMW pre- 
sidency against Tony Boyle. 

It seems that Boyle did not 
want increased safety mea- 
sures because it would slow 
down mine productlon.The un- 
ion leadership received 40^ 
per mixed ton of coal from 

the companies (almost $223, 
0000)0 In 1968) and this money 
did not go to the union dis- 
abled or widows and orphans.

The comments made In Con- 
vocation concerning our con- 
certs and other enrichment pro- 
grams started the wheels of 
reflection turning in my mind. 
Several weeks ago eighteen per- 
sons attended a performance 
by the Zimmers who are ac- 
complished musicians; when the 
LETTERMEN were on campus 
a year or so ago, people were 
turned away in spite of the fact 
that they were charged an ad- 
mission fee. What can be the 
reason? Both groups were con- 
sidered talented. The answer 
given by some was to the effect 
that the students liked the LET- 
TERMEN'S type of music. I 
am reminded that I like pine- 
apple pie very much, but my 
wife, who likes to try new 
recipes, has Introduced me to 
other delicacies which I never 
knew existed heretofore. Had 1 
been reluctant to try any food 
to which I had not been Intro- 
duced as a youngster (1 grew 
up in the Impoverished Appa- 
lachian area), my world as far 
as good food Isconcernedwould 
be extremely small. 

At the risk of being consider- 
ed -- what 1 am 1 know now -- 
I am past thirty, but not the 
establishment (faculty mem- 
bers are neither student nor 
establishment) — - may I remin- 

When 1 entered high school, 1 
hardly knew that there was 
any other music than "hillbilly" 
or "country" — later to be 
given the more sophisticated 
sounding title of "folk music." 
When 1 finally reached college, 
my horizon had been widened 
somewhat to Include popular 
music. Perhaps 1 had a pecu- 
liar ldeaconcernlngthepurpose 
of a college education: College 
meant the opening of new doors, 
climbing higher mountains, 
viewing horizons never before 
glimpsed In my wildest dreams. 

Perhaps I had inherited a little 
bit of the pioneering spirit of 
my grandfather, David Crock- 
ett. . .Hampton. 

MUllgan College had a con- 
cert series (Miss Ivor Jones 
was on the series committee); 
since 1 paid my activities fee, 
I felt that 1 must get my mon- 
ey's worth (thrift, you know). 
Anyway, I might miss something 
worthwhile. It was very difficult 
to sit through some of the con- 
certs because 1 didn't appre- 
ciate classical music;however, 
1 kept attending. It Miss Jones 
recommended it, there had to 
be something good in It. I had 

By the time I wallced across 
the stage to receive my degree, 
tbe process of osmosis had had 
its effect and those concerts 
had become less painful — even 
endurable and sometimes en- 

Through the succeeding years 
I subjected my person to many 
concerts (due In part to Miss 
Jones* Influence, and In part to 
a wife who perhaps thought It 
the thing to do — I really can- 
not say). Though I cannot truth- 
fully say that I appreciate all 
kinds of music, I am still keep- 
ing the avenues open. There 
may be new and more beautiful 
vistas to see. 1 am even learn- 
ing to listen to records my 
children playl When 1 stop 
learning, I shall cease to live 
and begin to exist. 

Had I taken the line of least 
resistance, many mountain-top 
experiences would have eluded 
me, one such experience being 
an evening last summer in New 
York central Park sitting with 
15,000 other people from every 
conceivable walk of life listen- 
ing to, ol all things, an opera. 

May God help to keep me 
receptive to all His wonders I

Milligan has recently had a 
problem with dogs roaming a- 
bout classrooms and other in- 
convenient places. This pro- 
blem was greatly alleviated 
last week when five of the 
dogs became lost and died in

attributed to either starva- 
tion or frustration.

31-29. The Bulls appeared out 
for revenge In the second game, 
as they trampled Clinch Valley 

Tuesday night the Bulls host- 
ed a very good East Tennessee 
State University team and lost 
58-22. The Buffs, who nor- 
mally play six-man ball were 
hampered by a lack of familiar- 

ity with live-man ball, which Is 
the variety played by ETSU. 

In both losses the Buffs were 
hurt by an inability to put the 
ball through the hoop against 
a tight defense. The Buffs shot 
only 17% from the floor against 
Sulllns, and 16% against ETSU. 
Against Clinch Valley, on the 
other hand, they hit 37%. 

Offensive standout for the 
Buffs through the first three 
games was freshman Robyn 
Bridges, who was high scorer 
against Sulllns and tied with

MILLIGAN'S ALL-EVERYTH1NC — Toonie Cash scored his 2,000th 
point in collegiate basketball Thursday night against Maryville. The 
feat provided yet another star in Toonie' s basketball crown which in- 
cludes such achievements as high school all-state, all-VSAC for two 
straight years, and 2nd in the nation In free-throw percentage. 

Cash scores 2000th point; 
Still paces all Buff scorers 

Charles "Toonie" Cash add- 
ed another honor to his list of 
basketball achievements last 
night as he scored his 2000th 
point of his college career as 
Milligan dropped a 93 to 79 
decision to Maryville. 

Cash, who missed the "se- 
cond thousand" mark by 3, 
points in last week's home- 
court finale, connected on a fif- 
teen foot Jump shot with less 
than three minutes gone In the 
first half to give him 2001 
points. He finished the game 
with 24 ; its. 

For "Toonie," this was not 
the first major accomplishment 
he bad attained on the court. 
Both his prep and college re- 
cords are filled with honors

and awards. 

It is interesting that the 
player who has amassed more 
points than any player In MU- 
ligan history did not start play- 
ing basketball until the eighth 
grade. Cash was not on the 
team as his freshman year be- 
gan, but his determination earn- 
ed him a spot on the team later 
in the year and a starting berth 
the next. 

The junior guard has not 
slowed down since entering 
Milligan in 1966. "Toonie" led 
tbe team in scoring during both 
his freshman and sophomore 
years and Is currently the scor- 
ing leader with 582 points In 23 
games for a 25.2 percentage. 

He has been MUllgan's most 
valuable player, best foul shoot- 
er, and named to the All-Vol- 
unteer State Athletic Confer- 
ence team for the past rwo 
years. His foul shooting per 
centage (90.1) earned Cash a 
second place ranking in small 
colleges his freshman year. 
In addition to all this, the 
5'1" guard holds the record 
for most points scored in a 
single game (49) as well as 
the most points scored In a 
single season (830). 

Going into last night's game 
'Toonie" had 558 points for the 
season. His field goal accuracy 
was 49% and he had an 67.5% 
clip at the free-throw line. With 
one regular season game to play 
and the tournament next week. 
Cash now has scored2021 points 
In his three years at Milligan.

burn 35-6 on Friday, February 
6 and to Western Carolina 24- 
16 on the following evening. 

Against Auburn, the peren-

champions, the Buffs were able 
to salvage three lies. The west-

lighted with pins by MUligan 
lightweights , Virgil DeFrles 
and Tom Hickok. 

One of MUligan'smost prom- 
ising freshmen, "Shrimp" De- 
Fries wrestled In the 118 lb. 
slot last weekend. He lound 
his Auburn opponent a little 
too much to handle although 
his 14-6 loss was much closer 
than the score. He pinned his

The 134 lb. slot remained 
empty as the Buffs forfeited 
that position for the fourth 
straight time. 

A 142 pound fresh man, Monte 
Baldwin, still filling In for 
the injured Rick Shilling, led

At 150 pounds, fiesbman 
Dave Steward lost to his Au-

olina, he came back from a 
predicament to win 7-5. 

Dwlght Elam, another of the 
six freshmen who help con- 
stitute MUligan's ten-man 
roster, fulfUled his purpose 
by avoiding a pin against Au-

at Western Carolina. Elam was 
fUllng in for the injured Rick 

At 168 and 177 lbs. respect- 
ively, Brett Younkin and Jerry

At 191 lbs. and the heavy-

Against Western Carolina, 
MUligan unveUed their first

Mr. Hayes was asked tocom- 
ment on the administration's 
rejection of his committee's 
original recommendation. He 
replied, "Anytime that the ad- 
ministration feels that the com- 
mittee has miscarried justice, 
it can act independently of the 
committee or hand it (the rec- 
ommendation) back to them." 
Miss Miller disagreed with 
this policy. "I believe for the 
committee to be effective and 
to serve Its original purpose, 
the judicial power must be left 
up to the committee. After all, 
the members were the only 
ones that heard all the evidence 
and weighed the case," 

On account of the precedent 
established by the Metheany 
case, Chairman Hayes conclud- 
ed with a "feeling that from 
now on we may have to lower 
the boom on everyone or Just 
disband the committee."

This year's BUFFALO staff 
■as devised a new method for 
aklng club pictures for the 
fear book. 

Id ihe past, clubs have met 
,t various times during the day 
o have their pictures taken 
iccordlng to a schedule estab- 
ished by the BUFFALO. 

This year pictures are being 
nade at regular club meetings, 
rhis method eliminates the 
jroblem of students having to 
x excused from classes to have 
■Jieir pictures taken. 

Another advantage to this 
-netticd is that it avoids con- 
fusion as to when the clubs 
will have their pictures made. 
Julia Huddleston, editor of 
che BUFFALO, reports that this 
year's staff is the first In the 
past few years to meet year- 
book deadlines. 

The staff Is currently work- 
ing on a 72-page section of the 
yearbook. When this section is 
completed and given to the 
printers, over half of the year- 
book will be done. 

Julia states that the year- 
books will be available to stu- 
dents on September 6, 1970. 
This year's graduating sen- 
iors and underclassmen who 
will not be returning to Mil-

The material used Is not 
always unanimously agreed up-

U.C. Berkeley Pres. 
attacks conformity 

San Francisco. Calif. -(I.P.)- 
Universlty of California Presi- 
dent Charles J, Hitch recently 
called for a "climate of 
change" that would dissipate 
"the threats of conformity 
hanging over the nation as well 
as over the university." 

"Historically, the pressure 
to conform, to limit curricula 
and restrict and censor ideas 
and opinions have come from 
outside the university com- 
munity. This son of pressure 
is still with us and is under- 

"But there is today a slg- 
nlfcant movement within uni- 
versities toward conformity, 
and this is both new and parti- 
cularly threatening, for this 
pressure on behalf of a new 
and rigid status quo, ironical- 
ly enough. Is made in the name 
of change itself. 

The University of California 
president made his remarks in 
the context of a definition of 
academic freedom, which he 
prefaced with the wish that 
"somehow we could discuss the 
concept without using the term 

"I am afraid," heexplained, 
"that many people outside the 
university — and a few within 
our community — believe that 
academic freedom is an 
unlimited license given to the 
faculty member to do anything 


"For example, a faculty 
member is not free to indoc- 
trinate his students or to im- 
pose his ideas on them, for the 
students, too, have a kind of 
academic freedom, the free- 
dom to learn. In addition, a 
faculty member must be care- 
ful to make clear that tils pri- 
vate opinions are just that, his 
private opinions and not those 
of the university. 

"Academic freedom really 
Is synonymous with integrity — 
the integrity of the professor, 
protected from those who would 
dictate his thoughts and ac- 
tions, and the Integrity or basic 
honesty of the professor when 
dealing with his students and 
with his institution. 

"Academic freedom can be 

abused from many sides 
from politicians, from regents, 
from students and from the 
faculty itself. Like anything 
else worth having, it takes a 
lot of hard work to keep it." 

Because "we must be free 
to explore the fringe of our 
knowledge," President Hitch 
said, "it is essential that all 
points of view be represented 
in a university, not necessari- 
ly on the faculty, but certainly 
by the faculty. 

"I think," President Hitch 
declared, "the university must 
remain a marketplace of ideas, 
that our best chance for ef- 
fecting positive change is con- 
tained in the promise of that 
marketplace, and that the risk 
of society's being seduced by 
a bad bargain there is very

Committee to visit 

ope" e d .,.,i. . ran g g | Self-Study goes to press 

A Recommendation 

Few Milllgan students would coadooe the zcuaa af Mr. Udheany 
wblch finally resulted In bis suspension hi. college, bm many Mil 
llgan students now arc thankful that his case has placed ibe discip- 
linary procedures of the college in the spotlight. 

Two crucial issues have evolved from die prDCeetfmgs, and they 
will be discussed in the dormitories, in the cafeteria, aod in the 
Student Union Building for weeks to cnriM*. First, does the faculty 
disciplinary committee act under the pressure of the administra- 
tion? Second, are there any enforceable alternatives open to the dis- 
ciplinary committee between "winking at lie rale-breaker" (for- 
getting the case) and "lowering the boom" (suspending the student^ 

Whether or not the administration applied pressure to the com- 
mittee in the case of Mr. Metbeany is irrelevant hi answering the 
first question. Merely the fact that a disciplinary cotominee re- 
commendation needs president J oonsan's acceptance before it be- 
comes a final decision corrodes the ideal innalabiliiy of the judi- 
ciary system. Such a policy makes the comcii nec rmthing more than 
a fact-finding board for one individual. 

Those who claim that pressure was applied to ibe fomrairtee di- 
rectly with insistent statements or indirectly with the use of the 
administrative rejection both lament the subservumce of the com- 
mittee to another power. Those who claim President Johnson hag 
never usurped the final authority of a cammiuee rfsiri«=i>m also ap- 
pear to support judiciary supremacy. Therefore, we advocate thai 
any recommendation of the disciplinary comnuitee become a final 
decision, not subject to approval or rcjecooa of the President. 

Since Mr. Metheany's case has set a disciplinary precedent that 
campus big of students is unenforceable at ibe present time leaving 
only two unsatisfactory polar alternatives, we recommend that 
"campus rooms" be established in one or more dornninrics in 
which students may be confined for varying periods of time depend- 
ing on the seriousness of the off ense under the supervision of dormi- 
tory councils. 

\ \ 

For the Whole Family 

When we were handed our convocation information «><-«*- and 
seat assignment during registration, we noited two reasons axed 
for the twice-weekly assembly being compulsory. 
1} "The Milllgan College Convocation Series represents one of 
the highlights of the academic year for the Milllgan College stu- 
dent body. . .outstanding guests have been nwiieti to participate.'' 
2) "The Milllgan College Convocation provides the only opport- 
unity for the entire student body and faculty to assemble in one 
place. A sense of comradeship and colleague rapport is thus 
provided for the academic community." 

We have always advocated compulsory convocation* certainly 
NOT because the first reason quoted above, m retros pect , has 
been extremely convincing. Rather, nt convocation were one of 
the highlights of our academic year, it wonid seem the remainder 
of our curriculum must be tragically Disappointing. The ration- 
ale of the second statement, however, appears io be more accept- 
able. In this age of the impersonal and expansive onrversiy com- 
plex which produces Its graduaies on an assembly-line basis,. 
a small, religious college provides ureonenc opportunities for its 
entire academic community (the Milifgyra '"family**?} to con — 
voke at one time deserves high esteem. 

The opportunities are provided at Milligan; the students attends 
no alternative if they wish to graduate. But where is the rest of 
the family; where is the faculty? UiUigan's professors have no 
assigned seats lor convocation, no "four cut" limits, no "Unsat- 
isfactory" grades at the end of semester, no extrinsic motiva- 
tion whatsoever. Many choose not to attend, an alternative which 
a majority of their students would like to have as well. Apparently 
the "outstanding guests" heard twice a week are not attractive 
enough to a majority of tbe faculty , Hopefully, "a sense of com- 
radeship and colleague rapport" may yet unite the lamilyjf not. 
the faculty handbook should be revised so that we all may share 
a similar compulsion to come together. 

tn September of 1968 Milii- 
gan College began Its Self- 
Smdy program requested of all 
colleges by the Southern Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and Schools 
ev eiy ten years. After some 
18 months of committee studies, 
reporting, and editing, the final 
report is now in the hands of 
the printer. Preparation is 
being made for tbe visit of an 
evaluating committee from the 
Southern Association. From 
beginning to end, the study has 
proceeded on an orderly sche- 
dule, andstudy committees have 
produced a prodigious amount 
of work. The entire faculty as 
well as student representatives 
did this work in addition to 
their regular responsibilities. 

To say that the Self-Studywas 
enlightening would seem trite 
ai this point. More accurately 
it could be called an experience, 
an experience In the sense that 
tbe college community as a 
whole bad an opportunity to 
study tbe college In terms of 
its total function. It gave oc- 
casion to contemplate the his- 
toric purpose of tbe college and 
to reaffirm that purpose. It 
enabled a formalizing of numer- 
ous procedures and precedents 
into written guidelines that will 
insure consistency of action In 
the days to come. It brought 
about a frank recognition of 
several problems and an effort 

to resolve them with all due 
haste. Many of the deficien- 
cies noted by committees were 
resolved before the completion 
of the study. 

Yet even as the final report 
goes to press there is a sense 
in which the Self-Study is not 
finished. Obviously, there had 
to be a time limit and a final 
statement prepared."" - But in 
many cases areas of concern 
had only become apparent as 
the study period ended, and it 
will now be necessary to dedi- 
cate the future to resolving 

these problems. 

Milllgan College looks for- 
ward to the visit of the eval- 
uating committee of the South- 
ern Association April 12-15 
with confidence and optimism. 
And at the same time the col- 
lege Is appreciative of the 
wisdom of tbe Southern Asso- 
ciation in pointing out tbe need 
for a continuing willingness to 
do institutional introspection In 
the interest of maintaining qua- 
lity education. 


More Board-student rapport 
provided by young trustees 

Elon College, N.C. -np.) 
A problem common to Doth 
small colleges and large uni- 
versities is how to bridge the 
generation gap and establish 
better relations between tbelr 
boards of trustees and stu- 

Elon College, a small liber- 
al arts Institution, thinks it 
found an answer. Elon's presid- 
ent , J, Earl Danleley, proposed 
to the board In their annual 
meeting that each year a grad- 
uate from the preceding year 
be named to a two-year term 
on the board of trustees. 

In approving this proposal, 
the board Included the stipu- 
lation that these recent grad- 
uates rank In the top ten per 
cent of their class and not be 
allowed to succeed themselves. 

"Tbe members of the Board 
are very enthusiastic about this 
approach which will provide 
for young alumni to serve as 
trustees soon after the com- 
pletion of their college work," 
commented Dr. Danleley In 
making the announcement. 

This new procedure will not 
affect the total number of 
trustees, which Is 36.

Rhodesia: Give or Take! 

In the 1950*s and early 19- 
60*8 , the British Crown Col- 
ony of Kenya was ravaged by 
an insurrection which Is re- 
membered as the Mau-Mau up- 
rising. The aim of the revolt 
was to regain the land that 
had been exploited from the 
native population. Many thou- 
sands of people, while and 
alack, died because of a greedy 
minority withholding rights 
from a majority. The rebel- 
Lion lasted eight long years 
and finally ended In the grant- 
ing of Independence to Kenya 
by Great Britain in 1963. 

Now it appears that the Air- 
Lean -continent can expect an- 
other similar rebellion. It will 
probably occur in Rhodesia. 
In 1965, Prime Minister Ian 
■ lurii of Rhodesia defied the 
British government and de- 
dared Rhodesia to be inde- 
pendent on November 11th of 
hat year. In 1967, the British 
'.overaor of the colony was 
withdrawn and sanctions were 
ipplied by Great Britain and, 
ater on, the United Nations, 
iomehow Rhodesia survives. 
The reason for the Smith 
defiance to the Crown was that 
Great Britain bad demanded 
that the Negro population be 
given a larger share of the 
responsibility in the govern- 
ment and that professional, ed- 
ucational and the sanctions used 
by the white minority be re- 
moved. The approximately 85, 
000 whites refuse to yield to 
the rest of the almost 5,000 
-000 population. And so far 
the sanctions seem to have 
little or no effect. Something 
must happen. Something will. 
In our own country, the min- 
orities have sought for and 
are gaining expression. But in 
Rhodesia, it is the majority 
which wants expression and 
those same rights quarantecd 
to all citizens of the Crown 
by the Magna Charta and the 
Bill of Rights. They do not 
have these rights, however. 
Rhodesia is controlled by 1/ 
90th of the population. 

Missionaries stationed in 
Rhodesia seem to hold [be "of- 
ficial" view that all is well 
and peaceful. But apply a 
little pressure and a new view 
emerges suggesting that they 
are scared. 

Black group 
At present, there is not a 
strong nationalistic black group 
to seek for the majority cause. 
But it will not take too much 
longer for a leader to appear 
and he may follow the age- 
old method. He will try to 
talk to the government. The 
government will not listen. He 
may seek help from England. 
None .will come. He will seek 
help from the United Nations. 
There will be words, not act- 

Upon finding out that he 
cannot win peacefully. It will 
happen that Rhodesia will er- 

upt into a blood-bath not seen 
since Kenya, only worse. The 
violence could then well 
spread to South Africa which, 
too, is ruled by a white min- 
ority. All this violence may 
come about because a greedy 
minority will not give a little 
to those who seek no more 
than what is theirs by right. 



(A right, by the way, that our 
own country would do well to 
remember that It declared). 
It may not happen this year 
or next . But there will come 
a time when someone will set 
off either an era of peace and 
prosperity or an era of blood, 
death, and misery. Only time 
wlU tell.

Letters to the Editor 


History student disturbed by editorial position on Vietnam War 

It was just thirteen months 
ago that Richard Nixon Inher- 
ited one of the most difficult 
and dangerous foreign pro- 
blems in American history. 

This Viet-Nam bot potato 
was tossed to Mr. Nixon by a 
President who could not handle 
it and in the midst of a public 
that had grown weary of it. 

Yet, even in the face of 
this high political pressure 
President Nixon decided on a 
moderate course of action. 

This "Vietnamlzation" pol- 
icy would neither eacaloie the 
ugly war that nobody wanted, 
nor would it back out on our 
allies and obligations in the 
Far East. president Nixon 
had asked the American people 
for yet a little more time and 

In light of this fact, the 
attitude expressed in the ed- 
itorial of the last issue of 
the STAMPEDE (The Silent 
Minority) is especially dis- 

The writer of the article 
lamented the fact that so many 
anti-war activists are desert- 
ing their cause for thecrusade 

To BM 

I am interested in your com- 
ment in the STAMPEDE 
February 27 (77?) concerning 
women faculty dress at Mtl- 
ligan basketball games. May 
1 point out that basketball is 
a "sports" event, and one of 
the logical places one would 
wear "sports clothes". Out- 
side of that, ball games are 
surely among the informal and 
casual events in campus life. 
I enjoy them Immensely. May 
I not then for those two hours 
relax, and "dress down"? 1 
feel it is appropriate to "dress 
up" to teach, to go to church, 
to concerts, to weddings, and 
such. I do not see a ball game 
fitting Into the same category. 
There is a faculty handbook. 
Wouldn't it, rather than the 
student handbook, be the place 
for faculty dress regulations? 
Let me know what you want 
worn to the basketball games. 
i may have to run out and buy

against pollution. He conclud- 
ed that this switch is allowing 
the President a free hand in 
continuing our intervention in 
the Vietnamese "civil war." 
To prove this claim of pre- 
sident Nixon's deceitfulness the 
writer used such conclusive 
phrases as "informed sources 
indicate" and "a high Viet- 
namese official quoted" — the 
same vague phrases that have 
i ■ u i so much confusion to an 
already confusing situation. In 
short, this "proof" is gothiag 

nore than some convenient 

Even more disturbing is 
the general attitude of the 
editorial (and a large segment 
of the nation as well) which 
always sees the President as 
an unscrupulous ' 'Oil Can 
Harry' ' who is in unholy alli- 
ance with the prospering 
military industrialists. 

This kind of paranoid dis- 
trust is certainly at the 
heart of much of the unrest 
in this county. How tragic it 

is when people impute immoral 
motives to those with whom 
they do not agree (politically 
or otherwise). 

Can we not dare to put some 
faith in our President? Can 
we not dare to give his Viet- 
namlzation policy a chance? 
Or does progress only come 
through opposition anddissent? 
1 think not.

Solutions suggested for several library problems 

As students, one of the main 
complaints we have heard about 
the library Is not so much the 
fact that It doesn't have many 
books and periodicals, but 
that those which it has are 
not there. Library spokes- 
men have noted that if a stu- 
dent wanted to steal a book, 
there would really be nothing 
which they could do to stop 
him. But couldn't we make 
It just a Uttie less convenient? 
Admittedly, the problem 
does not seem to be perma- 
nently stolen books. An in- 
ventory last year revealed that 
only(?) a little under a thou- 
sand books are missing from 
the stacks over the last 40 
years. The problem is with 
students who borrow a book 
over a period of several weeks, 
months, or years. If you have 
a term paper due in six weeks, 
why bother to check a book out 
three times and worry about 
overdue fines. 

The result is a shortage of 
the materials most commonly 
needed by students. The pro- 
blem in the unbound periodical 
section is scandalous. To find 
an issue of a magazine, it Is 
almost literally necessary to 
dump the pile on the floor and 
sort through them one by one. 
Inspection of the area would 
probably support the above 
theory. No system is avail- 
able to check periodicals out. 
and as a result, chances of 
finding a periodical are often 
1 In 2 or worse. 

A suggestion: First, lock 
the basement door leading to 
the stairs near the language 
lab (key-lock). Second, re- 
quire all students leaving the 

library to submJitheir mater- 
ials for inspection to the stu- 
dent at the checkout desk. This 
serves as a preventive rather 
man as an apprehensive mea- 
sure. Third, make the unbound 
periodical section a closed 
area to students. A library 
employee sitting at the entrance 
of the room would obtain and 
check out a periodical for a 

Traffic laws are often irk- 
some but are necessary for 

public protection. The li- 
brary staff has a responsibil- 
ity to the student body not 
only because we paytheir sala- 
ries, but because theyworkfor 
a college library. They also 
have a responsibility to the 
many individuals and organiza- 
tions who donate money to the 
library in good faith.

No taste for opera 

On April 16, Mr. George 
Shirley of the Metropolitan 
Opera will be brought to MU- 
ligan at a cost of $27.50. 

If, as Mr.Hampton suggested 
in last week's STAMPEDE, 
Milligan students should take 
advantage of the faculty con- 
certs to broaden their musical 
tastes, why should they do so 
at such a large figure? 

I am the first to admit that 
1 have not yet developed a 
taste for opera, even though 
my musical world has expand- 
ed since I was a redneck in 
high school. Having had one 
semester of General Psycho- 
logy, 1 must also reveal the 
fact that my aversion to opera 
can be traced to my childhood. 
I grew up with a brother who 
tried so desperately to be an 
opera singer that I learned to 
hate all opera singers Just as 

Although I accept the chal- 
lenge to extend my musical 
horizons, 1 am afraid that the 
renowned George Shirley will 
be wasted on me. It will be 

like learning the Latin lan- 
guage from the Pope. Speaking 
of Latin, if George tries to 
sing in it, I will leave and 
spend the rest of my convoca- 
tion in the P. H. Welsbimer 
Memorial Library. 

Sincerely , as usual, 
Melvin Morton

Policy of Disciplinary Committee is explained 

The purpose of this state- 
ment Is to Inform the Mllllgan 
College community concerning 
the policies and procedures of 
the Disciplinary Committee. 

The following paragraph, 
quoted from the Faculty Hand- 
book, sets forth the purpose of 
the Disciplinary Committee: 

The function of the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee Is to hear 
charges against students for 
Infractions of rules and reg- 
ulations which are of such 
gravity as to require consid- 
eration of suspension or dis- 
missal. Students are brought 
before the committee by the 
Dean of Men or Dean of Wo- 
men who present the cases 
but who do not serve as mem- 
bers of the committee. Stu- 
dents are always Invited to 
bring witnesses in their be- 
half, so that a complete pre- 
sentation of both sides can be

This commltte Is composedof 
at least two students and at 
least four faculty members. 
Members of the committee 
for the academic year 1969- 
1970 are Mr. Hayes, chairman, 
Mrs. Bowers, Mrs. Crowder, 
Mr. Ownby, Dr. Nix; student - 
representatives are Miss Har-

The philosophy governing the 
Disciplinary Committee cen- 
ters In the concepts of redemp- 
tion and protection. Its atti- 
tude toward the offending stu- 
dent is redemptive: n holds that 
every reasonable effort should 
be employed to help such stu- 
dents to overcome their weak- 
nesses and to grow in the posi- 
tive qualities of life. 

This calls for individual 
treatment respecting each of- 
fender even though this proce- 
dure Involves the danger of ex- 
posing the committee to the 
charge of "inconsistency" by 
those wbo favor a more un- 
compromising and legalistic

to pages 8-13: 

Admission to membership In 
Mllllgan College carries with 
it a pledge of responsibility by 
the student that he will subject 
himself to the rigorous disci- 
pine of the above program ('a- 
bove program' refers to pages 
8 and 9 of the bulletin).* Men 
and women wbo choose to de- 
cline this responsibility for- 
feit the privilege of member-

lege, therefore, reserves the 
right to refuse, suspend, or 
dismiss any student without as- 
signment of reasons. If such 
action is deemed to be In the in- 
terest of the College. 

Mllllgan College Is intent up- 
on Integrating Christian talth 
with scholarship and life. Be- 
cause of this Christian com-

each person affects the whole 
community. During attendance 
at Mllllgan, each student Is con-

The procedures or guidelines

All administrative discipline 
should be channeled through the 
Dean of Men or the Dean of

opportunities as well as direct 
disciplinary responslblltles. 

2. Therefore, In each case of 
reputed breach of discipline, the 
Deans may handle the Individual 
case as deemed wise, up to the 
point of suspension or dismissal 
from school. 

3. in the latter instance the 
Dean will ask the student In

in advance. 

5. Minutes of meetings of the 
Disciplinary Committee will be 
given to the President of the 
College, the Deans, and the 
members of the Committee. 

6. Essential information con- 
cerning "cases" may be se- 
cured by responsibly concerned 
persons through the adminis- 
tration of the college or from the 
student representatives on the 
Committee at the Council meet-

In direct action by a 
Dean or by the Committee In a 
disciplinary case the following 
concepts for reaching conclu- 
sions or offering corrective 
measures will be given con- 

1. A positive emphasis on

and a redemptive attitude to- 
ward the student being as highly 
Important for the college as well 
as for the student. 

III. Definitions of Actions 

1. Suspension: The student is 
denied continuance in Mllllgan 
College for a definitely stipul- 
ated period of time. This pen- 
alty Is regarded as being tem- 
porary and is not posted on the 
student's permanent academic 

2. Expulsion (or Dismissal): 
The student's relation with tne 
College is terminated, and the 
action Is regarded as perma-

circumstances the student may 
petition for a review of his/her 
case and re-admlsslon to the 
college. "Expulsion" will be 
posted on the Student's perma- 
nent academic record.

alf, the Mllllgan squad finally 
ell 52-47 as starting forward 
oyce Quilling re-injured her

Friday night the Buffettes 
attled a blood-thirsty Clinch

Quilling was able to play only 
i couple minutes and starting 
juard Janet Ferguson did not 
nake the trip due to illness In

Qualifications for the 1970 
Milligan Golf Team will be 
held on March 10 and 12 at 
the Ellzabethton Golf Course. 
Harry Wall, a Milligan stu- 
dent from Saltville, Virginia, 
is replacing the colorful Lar- 
ry Huff as coach. Wall re- 
ports that this year's team 
will consist of eight members 
instead of last year's ten. 

The difference will be that 
all eight men will take the road 
trips this year Instead of the 
usual six who actually partici- 
pate in the match. The extra 
two men will play the away 
course for experience. 

The only returning var-

eliminated Wayne Moore, Steve 
Klger, Herm Wandrei, Larry 
Dabney, and Danny Arnold, 

The Buffs will be back in 
force, however. Dick Bock and 
Gary Morrell, who both saw 
action last year, will be re- 
turning . The presence of 
Johnny Black, a former P.C.A. 
card holder will certainly not 
hurt the team.

Violence is out 
for protests 

(ACP) — Chicago -- Most 
protests by students during the 
first half of 1969 were non- 
violent, were focused on cam- 
pus issues, and were not led 
by members of the New Left 
according to a report this month 
by the Urban Research Cor- 

A study by the corporation 
showed that there were 292 
protests at 232 colleges and 
universities from J anuary 
through June of 1969. As a 
result of the protests, 956 stu- 
dents were suspended or ex- 
pelled, and 3,652 were arrest- 

Protesters succeeded in 
having at least one demand met 
in 37 per cent of all protests 
and, for the most part, they 
were more successful when 
they used the tactics of forci- 
ble seizure, striJce, or disrup- 
tlon the study revealed.

and to be better prepared for

during their training. Sopho-

a week observing both elemen-

The seniors take a whole

tion block" consists of 9 hours 
of seminar classes the first 
half of the semester and 8 
hours of student teaching the 
second half. 

During the first half of the 
education block, students gain 
valuable knowledge and ex-

New faces appear on campus 
as second semester begins 

With the beginning of second 
semester at Milligan College, 
many new faces appeared as 
more than thirty new students 
enrolled In classes. 

Included in the thirty arc 
students who are returning to 
Milligan after having been ab- 
sent for at lease one semester. 
Eight of the new students were 
enrolling in college for the 
first time. 

The new addition does not 
come close to making up for 
the nearly 100 students who 
left Milligan either after or 
during the first semester. 

Out of those 100 who left, 
25 withdrew and 18 graduated. 
This trend follows the "normal 
national pattern" of fluctuating 
college attendance, according 
to Milligan's registrar, Mrs. 
Phyllis Fontaine. 

This year, classes began with 
863 students enrolled, and drop- 
ped altogether to 804 for the 

beginning of second semester, 
a difference of nearly 60 stu- 

These figures compare with 
last year's cnrollmen: which 
dropped from 837 to 788, a 
difference of 49. 

At the start of the 1967-68 
school year more people were 
in attendance at Milligan than 
last year. With 864 beginning 
the first semester and 815 the 
second, there was again a dif- 
ference at 49. Obviously, the 
difference from year to year 
remained a reasonably con- 
stant figure. 

This semester's students hail 
from 34 states and four foreign 
countries, fnclnding Japan, 
Canada, and Thailand. The state 
of Tennessee Is represented by 
the most students, 150 of which 
are local commuters. Ohio 
rates second, closely followed 
by Virginia and Indiana, in that

ouncil resolution 

ds binding guarantee 

In legislative action last night. 
Student Council passed a reso- 
lution unanimously recom- 
mending a binding guarantee of 
the present policy of the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee. 

The motion was made by Ju- 
nior Representative Steve 
Knowles and seconded by 
Freshman PresldentChu- :kHH- 

This legislation came on ac- 
count of the ret ent Jiaion taken 
by the administration in the re- 
cent suspension of seven Mil- 

ligan College students. 

The resolution pertains espe- 
cially to the sections of the 
Disciplinary committee Policy 
that pertains to due process. 

Student Council President 
John Banks has submitted the 
resolution to President Johnson 
in the iorm of a letter today. 

In other action, StudentCoun- 
cil turned down its executive 
committee's recommendation 
for Mr. Phil Phillips to replace 
Miss Harriet Miller on the Dis- 

ciplinary Committee. Other 
names were suggested for fur- 
ther discussion by executive

around enforcement of line-

board for a long period of time, 
and it follows organisational 
lines envisioned by Dr. Walker 
during bis presidency. 

The president also announced 
the re-appointment of Mr. B.J . 
Moore to the position as busi- 
ness manager at an increased 
salary by board action. The 
president cited as one of the 
reasons for Mr. Moore's re- 
appointment the fact that his 
work in budget control and In- 
come production as well as 
the balance of his work to be 
of the highest order. 

In the area of student af- 
fairs, the president pointed out 
that the needs and capabilities 
of the college presently dictate 
that the position of a Director 
of Student Affairs should not be 
filled since the Dean of Men 
and Dean of Women and Coun- 
selor together adequately per- 
form these duties. 

President Johnson stated that 
he hoped to announcea Director 
of Development at the meeting 
but that at present no such an- 
nouncement could be made. He 
pointed out that the college has 
found it difficult to secure a 
person in this area because of 
available resources and our 
specific needs.

dates of Fall Break and Found- 
er's Day In the 1970-71 school 

The suggestions of the com- 
mittee were that Founder's Day 
continue to be held on Thanks- 
giving weekend and that Fall 
Break be moved to the middle 
of the first semester. 

In its orginal meeting on 
February 27, 1970, the com- 
mittee decided that students 
and faculty would be asked to 
express their opinions as to 
whether any change is needed. 

Dan Steucher, a member of 
the committee, reported that 
few people have voiced any opin- 

Though some students have 
expressed a complaint about 

the Founder's Day ceremonies 
being held on Thanksgiving, the 
holiday weekend has proven the 
most valuable as a homecoming. 
At that time, alumni, who have 
a major part In the festivities, 
and prospective students are 
free to attend. 

Dr. Wetzel commented that 
parents will be encouraged to 
come to Milligan and join in 
the festivities. This would be 
done in lieu of the possibil- 
ity of some students going home 
for the holiday. Of course, there 
will always !* those who leave. 

Members of the committee 
appointed by Dean Oakes were 
Dr. C, Robert Wetzel-chair- 
man. Miss I, Jones, Mr. Roy 
Hampton, Jan Mclntyre, Dr. 
William Gwaltney, Dan Steuch- 
er, and Dr. John Morrison.

Last Saturday evening 

Box Tops perform for Miliigan 

The Box Tops presented a 
concert at Miliigan College on 
March 6. 

This concert was sponsored 
by MllUgan's Student Council. 

The entertainment of the 
evening began with the song 
"Cry Like a Baby." It ended 
with "You Keep Tightening Up 
On Me," which is one of the 
Box Top's newest records. 

The first half of their per- 
formance Included such songs 
as "Sweet Dream Lady," "Born 
to be Wild," ■■Jumping Jack 
Flask," and "Love Can Make 
You Happy." 

During the second half of the 
Box Top's performance, they 
presented such songs as "The 
Letter," "Green Onion," "Soul 
Deep," "Neon Rainbow," and 
"Cry Like a Baby." 

After their performance, the 
Box Tops were called back for 
an encore. At this time, they 
performed "Born To Re Wild " 
and "You Keep Tightening Up 

On Me.' 

The Box Tops consisted of 
lead singer, Alex Chilton, bas- 
sist Bill Cunningham, leadguit- 
arlst Gary Talley, drummer 
Tom Boggs, and organist Rich 

After their performance at 

Ml' igan, they went to Memphis, 
Ten lessee, where they began 
their career In music. 

Next, the Box Tops will be 
touring Nebraska and Kansas. 
In the early spring, they will 
be touring Ohio, Indiana, Illi- 
nois- and Iowa. 

Segregation arrives 

The South is experiencing a 
phenomenal growth of private 
segregation the Southern Re- 
gional Council reported. 

The council estimated that 
enrollment In segregated pri- 
vate elementary and secondary 
schools Is now at least 300,000 
in 11 Southern states. This fi- 
gure includes older private 
schools that still are segregat- 
ed, as well as those established 
In the past several years pri- 
marily as escapes from public 
school desegratlon. 

St. Louis University 
students grade profs 

St. Louis, Mo. - (I. P.) - 
Student evaluations wtllbe add- 
ed to the criteria used by the 
St. Louis University committee 
on academic rank and tenure 
in making decisions on faculty 
promotions andgrnnringof ren- 
i ure. 

The committee's actio n was 
announced recently by the Rev. 
John W. Padberg, S. J., chair- 
man of the committee, in a 
letter to all full-time ranked 
faculty members. 

Father padberg said the 
committee on academic rank 
and tenure sees the decision as 
"an opportunity of enlisting 
more members of the Univer- 
sity community In a significant 
contribution to the University's 
advancement in excellence." 

He said the committee also 
viewed it. In part, as a response 
to the concern voiced at the 
president's Faculty Con- 
ference in September that "the 
quality of teaching and its im- 
provement should be a matter 
of continuing concern." 

The student evaluations will 
be taken Into consideration 
along with the evaluations of 
two of the faculty member's 
colleagues, his dean and his 
department chairman which 
are submitted to the committee 
on academic rank and tenure 
which makes the decision on 
promotions and tenure. 

At least four student evalua- 
tions will be requested for 
each faculty member being 
considered for promotion. 
Three of the students will be 
chosen by the chairman of the 
faculty member's department 
and one will be chosen by the 
faculty member himself. 

The evaluation form to be 
used by the students will dif- 
fer from those used by the 
colleagues, chairman and dean 
In that It will ask specifically 
for the student's comments on 
the faculty member's teaching. 
The forms carry information 

on the ECtivfties in research 
publication, consultation and 
advisement which are expected 
of every faculty member. 

The committee emphasized 
that as in the past, no one 
would be advanced in rank or 
denied promotion simply on an 
Isolated evaluation of any kind. 
The student evaluations will 
be used beginning with the 
1970-7! Htademic year. 

The newer schools, many of 
them decidedly Inferior In cur- 
riculum, staff and facilities, arc 
thrlvlng partly because of legal- 
ly questionable federal exten- 
sion of tax advantages and be- 
cause of the Southern states 
laxity In establishing official 
standards for private schools, 
the SRC report contended. It 
called for removal of non- 
taxable status and other federal 
assistance from schools which 
are clearly descriminatory. 

The report said that none of 
the Southern state departments 
of education are keeping ac- 
curate records of these devel- 
opments and their Import, 
though the new academies may 
constitute a threat to public ed- 

"The implications of the 'se- 
gregation academy' phenome- 
non reach, of course, far beyond 
the simple significance of re- 
moving children to a segregated 
situation In a democratic coun- 
try. Many such schools tend to 
be not only racist but also right- 
wing extremist, attracting 
board members and teachers 
who are philosophically in ac- 
cord with ant! - democratic

piano recital Thursday ni£ht. 

Miss Hoist is a sophomore 
music major at Milligan Col- 
lege. She played music by 
Bach, Beethoven, Bartok, and 
Brahms at her concert. 

Four other music majors art- 
scheduled to give voice re- 
citals during this semester. 

Beverly Enoch will present 
her .senior voice recital on 
March 21. Miss Enoch is a 

Tenor, Mike Woods, will sing 
April 20. Mike Is a member 
of the Junior class. 

Melody Friend, a sophomore, 
and Nancy Washier, a senior, 
will also present voice recitals. 
Miss Friend's recital will be 
April 26, and Miss Washler's 
will be May 4. 

All four of the recitals will 
be held at 8:00 p.m. in See- 
ger Memorial Auditorium. 

All music majors at Mil- 
ligan College must present a 
recital during their college car- 

The primary purpose of this 
recital is to give the student 

practical experience in per- 
forming In public. 

The recital must '/? si a 
certain degree ol difficulty. 
Quality of performance is also 
Important when the student 
gives the recital. 

Many stude^ns give two re- 
citals, one their Junior year 
at Milligan and one while they 
are a senior. However, it Is 
not unusual for a student to 
give only one recital. 

Although It does not fre- 
quently occur, a student may 
give a recital each of his years. 
Individual skill is the depend- 
ent factor In the number of 
recitals a student presents. 

Cases hnve risen where a 
student's technique has not Im- 
proved enough for him to give 
a whole recital. Such a student 
would be allowed to graduate 
if he had ability In several 
fields of music. 

Mr. John Dowd, chairman, 
of the Fine Arts Department 
at Milligan College, encour- 
ages all students to support their 
fellow students when they give 
a recital. 

Based on grade-point? 

Deans List standards under study 

Due to the extremely high 
academic requirement for 
Milligan's Dean's List, the 
Student Council has been dis- 
cussing the possibility of low- 
ering the standard. 

The present requirement al- 
lows a student this academic 
honor If he has achieved a 4.0 
average or if he has only one 
"B" and the remainder of his 
semester grades are "A's." 

The StudentCouncil appointed 
Patti Derrlckson to investigate 
the matter further. Miss Der- 
rlckson reported the Dean 
Oakes saw no possibility of low- 
ering the present standard. 

The system could, however, 
be changed to point average of 
perhaps 3.875. In some cases 
this would make the standard 
even higher, depending upon the 
number of hours a student car- 

The dean also proposed two 
lesser graduations of honor at 
3.5 and 3.0. In Its last meeting 
the Council considered these 
alternatives and found the 3.5 
grade point average to be worthy 
of honor. 

Representative Gary Davis 
moved that the Council investi- 

gate the feasibility of a pre- 
sident's List and Dean's List. 
Miss Derrlckson reports, how- 
ever, that the traditional 
Dean's List will remain the 
highest honor. 

The requirement for Mil- 
ligan's Dean's List is due in 
part to the high academic ach- 
ievement of her students. While 
the average Milligan student has 
a "B-'' standing, the average 

American college student hasa 
"C-" standing. 

Contributing to this higher 
achievement is the ability of 

Milligan students to drop any 
course up to two weeks before 
finals. This results in fewer 
failing grades. 

Student Council President 
John Banks will Investigate this 
matter futher. 

Administrative committee 
suspends three students 

An administrative committee 
decided Monday to suspend 
three Milligan students involv- 
ed in the Friday night distur- 
bance at the Box Tops concert. 

The action came after the 
three students, Dallas Wil- 
liams, Roger Phillips, and Jim 
Gla/.e, confessed to charges 
brought before them at the 

The disturbance was first 
brought to the attention of Dean 
of Men Walker at the intermis- 
sion of the concert. At this 

time he was summoned to the 
concert by students who com- 
plained of disturbances by some 
students during the first half 
of the concert. 

The outbreak of disturbances 
near the end of the performance 
was in full view of the Dean of 
Men and the student body. 

It was noted by both Presi- 
dent Johnson and Dean Walker 
that the dismissal came as a 
result of the drinking charge 
and not the dancing charge.

' The music students sup- 
port athletic and other school- 
spirited events on campus." 
remarked Mr. Dowd. 

"If a student gives a re- 
cital before his relatives and 
personal friends only, the con- 
cert really does not give him 
much experience. He needs to 
peform before someone other 
than these people," Mr. Dowd 

Students taking choir are re- 
quired to attend eleven out of 
fifteen of these recitals. This 
requirement is a part of the 
student's grade and can result 
in a failure equal to a failure 
on a quiz.

in Milligan's 
AAU chapter 

Although the American Asso- 
ciation of University Profes- 
sors is a nationally known or- 
ganization, the Milligan Col- 
lege chapter is often overlooked 
by students, faculty, and ad- 
ministration alike. 

The national organization en- 
compasses approximately 130,- 
000 college faculty members 
from all over the country. In- 
dividual school chapters are 
included in state chapters which 
in turn make up the national 

The purpose of the organiza- 
tion is mainly to interpret and 
reflect faculty viewpoint on con- 
temporary collegiateproblems. 
Its members try to show their 
concern for the education field 
and to say something about it. 

The A.A.U.P. attempts to take 
a different approach to these 
pertinent problems. It takes 
the unique faculty viewpoint in 
contrast to student or adminis- 
trative viewpoint. 

In keeping with this point of 
order, only faculty members 
may be included In the associa- 
tion. Any person who spends a 
majority of his time in an ad- 
ministrative capacity is eli- 
gible only for an associate 

Milligan's faculty includes 
some 25-30 A.A.U.P. mem- 
bers. President of Milligan's 
chapter is Dr. Orvel Crowder, 
Professor Robert Hall Is vice 
president, and Mrs. Carolyn 
Nipper is secretary. 

The Milligan chapter of 
A.A.L.P. usually meets once a 
month to consider various prob- 
lems facing the academic world. 
Generally a qualified speaker 
gives an introduction co aprob- 
lem, which is then followed by 
a discussion. 

Discussion for their next 
meeting will be that ol acade- 
mic freedom qualified by reli- 
gious institutions. 

Dr. Richard Phillips, mem- 
ber of A.A.U.P. says, "It's 
not really fair to regard it as 
a union, though some look at 
it that way." The organiza- 
tion has no official standing 
with the schools.

Student Council committee study 

of d 

iscipline system continues 

The student council commit- 
tee set up to investigate possi- 
ble alterations in MiMgan's 
male discipline system met and 
reported Monday night. 

The members of the commit- 
tee, Darnell Messlk, sophomore 
and chairman, Myra Kullowatz, 
senior, Chuck Hllborn, fresh- 
man, Dave Chupa, freshman, 
Steve Morton, senior , Jim 
Slaughter, freshman, and Dave 
Thompson, senior have been 
Investigating possible solutions 
and recommendations. 

Colleges and universities 
from all parts of the United 
States have been contacted about 
their means of male discipline. 
Schools from California, Ore- 
gon, Washington, the southern 
states, andTennessee have been 
contacted. These are both 
public and private schools, 
state-supported and church- 

All members of the Discip- 
linary Committee* Professors 
Hayes, Bowers, Ownby, NU, 
and Mrs. Crowder, and stu- 
dents Mr. Jim Mounts and Miss 
Harriet Miller were also con- 

Several members of the ad- 
ministration were also inter- 
viewed. These Included Presi- 
dent Johnson, Dean of Women 
Young, Dean of Men Walker, 
Dean of Academics. Oakes, 
Dean of Summer School Wet- 

zel, and Mr. B. J. Moore, col- 
lege business managers. 

The school's lawyer, Mr. 
Banks, was consulted on the 
legality of work details as dis- 
ciplinary punishment. Pre- 
viously, it had been stated that 
such punishment was legally 
impossible. But according to 
Mr. Banks, work details as 
disciplinary action arc- legal 
if assigned with the written 
agreement of the student. 

In the past, several means 
of carrying out male disci- 
pline have been tried. One 
was a temporary suspension 
for three weeks. This, how- 
ever, seemed merely a vaca- 
tion and ineffective as punish- 

ment or as rehabilitative action. 

A probationary system with 
faculty members acting as pro- 
bationary offtcc-rs was also at- 
tempted. Students would see 
their officers once a week for 
a period of time. This was de- 
manding on the faculty, how- 
ever, andhadto be discontinued. 

A major problem discovered 
in the committee's investigation 
was that of enforcement of pun- 
ishment. Few are willing to 
take the responsibility of enfor- 
cing any disciplinary action. 

The committee is open to all 
student and faculty suggestions 
and urges anyone with feasible 
ideas to contact one of the com- 
mittee members. 

COMMITTEE ACTION — Sophomore Representative, Darnell 
Messick, chairman of the Student Council Disciplinary Committee 
and Freshman President Chuck Hllborn, one of the committee 
members, discuss a letter they received concerning policy in a 
Northern University.

Camerata concert praised 

New York City's Camerata 
Singers under the direction of 
Abraham Kaplan gave a beauti- 
ful, wide-ranging concert of 
choral music Sunday afternoon, 
March first, inSeeger Memor- 
ial Chapel. This was an offer- 
ing of both the Johnson City 
Community Concert Associa- 
tion and Milllgan College Con- 
cert Series. 

The audience, composed pri- 
marily of townspeople, enjoyed 
particularly the two selections 
utilizing an antiphonal choir. 
Lasso's Echo Song, really a 
Scherzo for voices, was done 
interestingly in a very slow 
tempo and with very crisp Ita- 
lian diction. Schutz's Sing to 
the Lord was written for St. 
Mark's Church in Venice where 
the antiphonal choirs stood in 
several separate alcoves mak- 
ing the sound cross and re- 
cross the congregation. The 
Camerata Singers' echo choir 
stood around one corner of the 
balcony, and achieved at least 
something more than a straight- 
back echo effect. Both songs 
were performed impeccably, as 
was almost every piece on the 

Vocally and musically, the 
Mozart Requiem was by far the 
highlight of the concert. This 
group sings choral music with 
musical abandon and vocal con- 
trol, and without sacrificing in- 
dividual vocal quality for the 
sake of 'blend'. Such a sound 
Is continuously satisfying and 
at times electrifying. Such a 
sound brings to the listener all 
the depth of spirituality andpur- 
pose In a work like the Requiem. 

The opening chords of the Tex 
Tremendae, and particularly of 
the Sanctus were something to 
be remembered. The sound was 
clean and clear, majestic and 
brilliant - it filled the hall 
and resounded, and must cer- 
tainly be what was intended to 
convey the idea of heavenly 
voices singing the "Holy, 
Holy", [t was a sound at once 
relaxing in its correctness and 
spine-tingling In its excitement. 

Certainly Abraham Kaplan 
was largely responsible, for he 
showed remarkable excellence 
In choral direction; his conduct- 
ing showed clearly what he 
wanted, and he then obtained 
that from the singers. Music- 
ally he had the courage to relax 

into a slow tempo, keep it un- 
changed, yet retain the life of 
each phrase. The opening Re- 
quiem aeiemam, the Recor- 
dare, Lacrymosa, Hostias, and 
Agnus Dei were done this un- 
hurried way. 

The solo quartet was excel- 
lent both in ensemble and in- 
dividually. Those four voices 
produced of themselves an ama- 
zing volume. 

There was good balance in 
the choir among the four vocal 
parts - yet each person ob- 
viously was a very gifted solo 

The Camerata Singers de- 
serve a lot of praise andthanks 
for a thrilling concert.

of a winter scene, what the world 
has done to us, the realization 
that "we are moved by a mo- 
tion not our own." One cannot 
read the magazine without hear- 
ing the sensual music of "those 
dying generations." 

But what is the purpose of 
such a magazine If not to be 
the medium for that message? 
The contributors have read Mc- 
Kuen, but not Wilbur; they have 
chanted with Ginsberg, butnev- 
er heard Jarrell. The candid 
narcisscism of most of the 
works is offset by a few mo- 
destly successful attempts at a 
more objective approach. But 
then, who will argue that ex- 
pressionism Is not art?

Dear President Johnson, 

We wish to take this opportunity to apologize for the large number 
of Milligan students who are acting upon their concern for the man- 
ner In which you handled the receni disciplinary cases. 

Everyone, of course, realizes what the policy of the discipli- 
nary committee, approved by your office a year ago, speciflces 
as due process. "In each case of reputed breach of discipline, 
the Deans may handle the individual case as deemed wise, up 
to the point of suspension or dismissal from school. In the latter 
instance the Dean will ask the student in question if he chooses 
to appear before the Disciplinary Committee or to voluntarily 
withdraw from school." 

Few members of the Milligan community, however, realize what 
great pressures must be exerted on your office and what great 
demands must be placed on your time that necessitated such quick 
and decisive action last Monday. 

If these Individuals would avail themselves of Machiavelll's 
Prince or Niebuhr's Moral M3n and Immoral Society, we are cer- 
tain that they would realize that institutional po teles are always/ 
should always be dependent upon the varying situation. They would 
learn that occasions arise when precedurc, no matter how carefully 
considered or officially approved or widely respected, must be 
sacrificed for other priorities. Hopefully, these persons will learn 
to become more flexible. 

When you suspenied the seven students this week without offering 
them the option of withdrawal, when you yourself handled all ten 
cases collectively without recourse to the Disciplinary Committee, 
you underlined for all of us that '•working through channels" is not 
always essential nor always practical and that faculty committees 
either deserve little confidence or are too sluggish for short- 
range considerations. 

We sympathize with your position as President of Milligan 
College, understanding the great stress and conflicting Interests 
which accompany it. We hope that together we may work in mutual 
confidence for the future of Milligan College as a more efficiently 
operating educational Institution.

who smile innocently at our par-

is not merely establishing a

cerning the attitude of a few 
students here, even overstat- 
ing tbe matter. Mr. Neth doesn't

cause he just doesn't give a

pose of flunking kids out of 

I am writing this article In 
hopes that I may pass on a 
bit of wisdom that took a long 
time to penetrate my solid rock 
cranium, and because I care 
about every one of you, with- 
out exceptionl In my minature 
millennium here I have found 
that most, though certainly not 
all, causes and their subseq- 
uent rumors are unfounded or 
are rooted in misconception. 
I don't believe I'm super- 
straight, nor easily duped. 
Neither has the "barteringram 
coercion of the administrative 
dictatorship" worn down my 
walls and my will to stand for 
right. Rather, experience is a 
strange, yet convincing teacher! 
When I was a freshman here 
in 1964 word circulated around 
the dorms to the effect that 
President Walker ard Miss Tadd 
(then the dean of women — and 
very popular among the stu- 
dents, I might add) were on 
the rampage in a morals crack- 
down. It was said that they 
separated a couple that was 
getting too passionate in the 
Sutton lobby. This was bear- 
able. But soon we heard (we 
always forgot exactly from 
whom) that they went so far 
as to reprimand a boy for mere- 
ly having his arm aroundagirl, 
and even to break up a par- 
cheesi game and reinstate the 
defunct 18-inch rule. The icing 
was put on the cake when it 
seemed that Milligan officials 
tried to gain $1000 the easy 
way by concocting a technical- 
ity concerning chapel (now con- 
vocation) registration that 
manifested itself as a $5 fine 
for 200 students. The campus 
simmered and steamed like it 
hasn't in six years since. Pre- 
sident Walker was hung in ef- 
figy (and the rope may still 
be seen hanging from a branch 
of the big tree next to the Hop- 
wood stump), tar was mixed, 
and Dr. Walker's car was about 
to get upended. Fortunately, re- 
sponsible and level-headedstu- 
dents stopped the moment of 

extreme reaction, entered Into 
dialogue with school officials, 
and found to our embarrass- 
ment that most of what we 
heard was false or contorted 
from the fact. 

1 tell this story for a de- 
finite purpose. I believe that it 
is somewhat typical of our 
generation to lie in waiting for 
championing a cause. Perhaps 
this is due to the potential 
energy of youth trying to find 
expression in some form, and 
it certainly must be admitted 
that there are causes very 
worthy of defense and action. 
Yet, sometimes it seems that 
our own sensitivity to the way 
we think our elders regard us 
Is what causes controversy. 
An act is done, rumors fly, 
and emotion and slogans for 
action run rampant in rebellion 
until an understanding is 
reached, often too late to re- 
tract foolish statementsand to 
avert rash action later re- 
gretted. Then, too, there is 
always tbe reality that in any 
society there are those who 
spend all their time com- 
plaining and none f it con- 
tributing. These are the people 
that make you wish birth con- 
trol were retroactive. 

In my tenure here I have 
found that student complaints 
are often petty, including some 
of my own. We spend too much 
time feeling sorry for ourselves 
and wishing we bad more. I think 
we all have tendencies to: (1) 
blow too much time; (2) take 
our studies too lightly; (3) not 
appreciate what we do have; 
(4) be selfish. How' often do we 
look for ways to serve? We 
must be careful of our own 
hypocrisy here. I have found 
our faculty and administration 
to be generally exemplary of 
traits which we prefer to as- 
sign ourselves. Most of them 
are hard workers, sacrifice 
a great deal, and are genuinely 
interested in tbe students. I'm 
not trying to collect brownie 
points here either, for I'm no 
longer a Milligan student and 
it would profit me nothing. If 
you do not agree, I dare you 
to gel to know such people as 
Dr. Wetzel, Dr. Helsabeck, Dr. 
Crowder, and others on a per- 
sonal basis and then maintain 
the same position. Perhaps a 
limited few seem narrow- 
minded and dictatorial or un- 
concerned, if they are, let us 
remember that it is their 
inadequacy, not ours, that 
makes them thai W3y. Their 
security of person requires 
such a defense, not ours. 

Don't be a rebel without a 
cause. Consider a problem 
carefully, and be wise enough 
and brave enough to go to its 
source openmlodedly and with 
reserved emotional reaction 
before determining an action. 
Adequate communication can 
prevent unnecessary foolish-

mind the Anti-Israeli coalition

and freezing of assets falls to 
work, the world community 
would not be too hesitant in 
applying the kind of measures 
that any people can understand: 
military force. 

But even before this might 
come to pass, It seems cer- 
tain that the Islamic nations, 
which "seem" powerless to 
stop or at least regulate ter- 
rorist activity, may expect 
retaliation by Israel. It is 
fully expected that the air- 
ports at Clro, Damascus, Am- 

man, or Beirut may prepare 
for destruction of a regal scale. 
Also, since the terrorists are 
striking at Israel's largest In- 
dustry (Tourism) Egypt could 
well expect the Israeli com- 
mandos to pay a visit to the 
Asuon High Dam. (They have 
previously made strikes to 
within 20 miles of the dam.)

be well if Jordon, Egypt, Syria 
and Lebanon would find a way 
to control the small splinter,

not, Chen they had better be 
prepared to face the conseq-

Letters to the Editor 


Problems with concert series explained by committee member 

I would like to congratulate 
you on the improved quality 
of the STAMPEDE this year 
as compared to previous years 
that I remember. However, 
there was a recent item re- 
lated to the concert series that 
should be corrected. In an In- 
terview with Dr. Moorhouse, 
your staff reported that the 
art exhibits we have been hav- 
ing contributed to the "fail- 
ure of this year's concert ser- 
ies." While this year's series 
has many obvious faults. It 
should not be implied that the 
exhibits contribute to them 
in any way. The budget allot- 
ted to an exhibits was only 
5% of the total series budget 
and this 5% has yet to be spent. 
The statement that we spent 
$200.00 on oneexhibit was alone 
is incorrect. We have not spent 
over $50.00 for all three of the 
exhibits which we have had. 
Naturally, Mrs. Wilson, Mr. 
Kite, and I have not charged 
anyone extra for our work 
In hanging the exhibits and ar- 
ranging for them to be at our 
school. We are glad to be able 
to bring this kind of thing to 

Thank you 

I wish to take this means of

cation, and especially to Curt

member who said "1 would 
rather hear our own talented 
students than a professional."

Mllligan College at long last. 
The problems of the concert 
series are mainly the result 
of poor scheduling. 

Students who have been com- 
plaining lately that we never 
get Simon & Carfunkle or Pet- 
er, Paul & Mary or such art- 
ists should be advised that these 
artists are extremely highly- 
paid performers. Recently, 
Dlonne Warwick performed at 
E.T.S.U. for a guaranteed $10, 
000 plus 85% of all money up to 
$17,000. We cannot afford any 
such amounts for our whole 
budget, much less one per- 
former. Next year's budget will 
include more money for popular 
artists or artist, but it still 
Is impossible to obtain any of 
the well-known top popular art- 
ists with our means. In the 
classical field, the very topmost 
artists are able tocommandthe 
fees that most popular artists 
expect. That leaves a very large 
number of people who perform 

very well and can bring very 
high-quality performances to 
our campus at a price we can 
afford. The series is designed 
to educate and entertain, after 
all, not just entertain. This may 
be the only chance you may have 
to enhance the quality of your 
educatlon, by going to the ser- 
ies events. Staying "home" in 
the dormitory when there Is a 
concert in our series and com- 
plaining that you don't like "op- 
era" or "Beethoven" Is an ex- 
ercise In futility that demeans 

the college as well as yourself. 
These "side-benefits" of your 
college life are not to be taken 
lightly, they may well open an 
area of human experience that 
you do not now know exits.

A testimony for Shirley 

In April, a very capable and 
professional singer wil 1 be 
brought to Milllgan College. 
George Shirley has earned rec- 
ognition In the Metropolitan 
Opera and Carnegie Hall in 
New York, and it Is certainly 
an honor to have him here. It 
is not often we have the oppor- 
tunity to hear someone of his 

It Is unfortunate that some 
people here at Milllgan are so 
narrow-minded as to pass a 
judgment on the man's talent 
before even hearing him. Of 
course, there are differences In 
taste, but that is no reason 
to completely close one's mind 
to something, especially on the 
grounds of language. Some of 
the most beautiful pieces of 
music literature are written in 
Latin or some other language. 
They are performed in that 
language because that was the 
composer's Intention. To 
change It would detract from 
the music. 

I trust that the majority 
of Milllgan students will not be 
prejudiced by one, narrow- 

minded person's comments. I 
am looking forward to an ex- 
cellent concert and hope others 
will keep an open mind and en- 
joy it also.

bers are no different than stu- 
dents in one respect - we pre- 
fer the balcony rather than 
parade in front of you to the

tion strongly advocates that all 
faculty attend. Consider also 
that most of us on the under- 
graduate level have been 
through compulsory attendance 
at such regular meetings even 
at state supported schools. By 
the time you have completed 
your undergraduate work and 
been through graduate school as 
we have you will not be requir-

Surely Shirley's worth it 

Why all the fuss about the 
fee being paid to George Shir- 
ley to come sing for us, and 
the fact that the concert is to 
be a Convocation? He is an 
artist of tremendous stature 
in the musical world, a terri- 
fic singer, and he deserves 
every penny. For at least the 
past two years of which I can 
speak, our concert series has 
suffered needless annual re- 
petition, such as having two 
pianists and two Instrumental 
ensembles — one of which was 
non - professional students. We 
have also endured low quality 
entertainment such as last 
year's lacklustre opera com- 
pany and Lawrence Welk's 

prime competitor In '68. These 
shortcomings were due In part 
to stretching the budget too far 
over too many things. This year 
it has been spent on fewer but 
better things, and all just for 
you. So we finally get a singer 
and a good one. Yes, you may 
hear some beautiful songs and 
arias sung in their original lan- 
guages. I am sorry about that, 
bur the United States has lag- 
ged In having singable trans- 
lations available. I do hope you 
will each come to the concert 
and enjoy It.

open range: Students ponder disciplinary policy 

The following three arcicles express the opinion of their writers only. They do not neces- 
sarily represent those of the STAMPEDE staff nor the majority of the student body. It Is the 
policy of this newspaper to print various student opinions in an effort to give an '"open range" 
to all comment. Responsible persons who wish to reply to Mr. Metheany, Mr. Snocker, or Mr. 
Morton are urged to use the STAMPEDE as the vehicle of that response.

Milligan College Is described 
In her catalogue as an intimate 
Christian community. The term 
"community" presupposes mu- 
tual trust among its members. 
As members of the "Milligan 
Family," students trust that the 
total Christian community will 
care about them as individuals. 
Conversely, faculty and admin- 
istrators trust that students 
care about the general welfare 
of the school. Recent discipli- 
nary actions have emphasized 
an apparent breakdown of trust 
among members of the Milli- 
gan community. This break- 
down raises a serious Issue of 
vital concern to all members of 
the Milligan Family; can there 
be any close feeling of Chris- 
tian community without mutual 
trust among the members of that 
community? Although this ques- 
tion of mutual trust applies to 
virtually every function of the 
college, how does It specifi- 
cally apply to the Ideals of the 
Disciplinary Committee and the 
realistic application of those 

Since the function of the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee mainly 
concerns Milligan students, can 
the students trust the ideals of 
the Committee? The philosophy 
of the Committee centers In 
three main concepts; redemp- 
tion of offending students when- 
ever possible, protection of 
Milllgan's general reputation, 
and consideration of each case 
as an individual situation. The 
Committee deals only with stu- 
dents who have seriously vio- 
lated the trust of the college 
community and are therefore 
subject to either suspension or 
expulsion. According to page 
ten of the Milligan College Bul- 
letin, "men and women who 
chose to decline this respon- 
sibility {of subjecting to the 
rigorous program of the col- 
lege) forfeit the privilege of 
membership in the college. The 
College, therefore, reserves 
the right to refuse, suspend, 
or dismiss any student without 
assignment of reasons, if such 
action Is deemed to be in the 
interest of the College." How- 
ever, In the past three years, 
serious offenders have been 
given the option of a second 
chance through the redemptive 
channels of the Disciplinary 
Committee. Thus, the Commit- 
tee's Ideals of redemption and 
individual consideration clear- 
ly reflect the college's con- 
cern for the individual Milli- 
gan student. 

If students can trust the stat- 
ed ideals of the Committee, can 
they also trust the realistic 
application of these ideals? In 
the latest disciplinary actions, 
several serious limitations In 
the function of the Disciplinary 
Committee have been revealed. 

One very serious limitation 
of theCommitteeappearedwhcn 
a male student was suspended 
because of the current opinion 
that there are no workable in- 
termediate disciplines, short of 
suspension, which can be rec- 
ommended for male offenders. 

In response to this dilemma. 

the Student Council has appoint- 
ed a committee to study the 
disciplinary practices of other 
colleges and universities in or- 
der to make constructive sug- 
gestions to the Disciplinary 
Committee. While members of 
the Disciplinary Committee are 
anxious to receive these rec- 
ommendations. It is still a fact 
that the redemptive ideal for 
male offenders Is precisely un- 
workable. Obviously, this limi- 
tation hasserlouslyundermlned 
the trust of students concerned 
about the quality of Milligan 

While other limitations have 
been exposed, their most se- 
rious implications directly re- 
volve around the issue of mutual 
trust. Some questions need to 
be answered. Do Individual stu- 
dents care enough about im- 
proving the College to actively 
seek constructive solutions for 
the apparent breakdown of trust 
within the MilliganCommuniry? 
Conversely, do faculty and ad- 
ministrators care enough about 
individual students to value 
their recommendations? Is It 
possible that all members of 
the community need to co- 
operate more in a genuine ef- 
fort to emulate mutual trust? 

Stephen Morton 

For the most part, 1 see 
the rules of Milligan College 
as being neither Christian nor 
unchristian. To support this 
thesis would Involve a lengthy 
theological discussion which I 
feel Is out of place in a news- 
paper. 1 will say, however, 
that there is a Christian ap- 
proach to obeying and enforc- 
ing the rules. 

In my view it is Christian for 
students to obey the rules of the 
College. Someone sees these 
rules as being important. That 
is why the rules are made. That 
is why the rules stay. I may 
think that the rule is unneces- 
sary. I may be wanting to do 
something that is innocent, but 
the rule keeps me from it. Un- 
less I believe that the rules is 
definitely unchristian, I must 
obey it as a Christian. My obli- 
gation in this case is based on 
Paul's admonition regarding 
meats offered to idols. I must 
not become a "stumbling block" 
to those who make and enforce 
the rules. 

On the oiher hand, those who 
must enf on e the rules are com- 
pelled to be redemptive because 
of the Christian nature of this 
institution. The disciplinarians 
need not be redemptive if the 
offender is not penitent. On the 
other hand, the disciplinarians 
must be forgiving if the offender 
is penitent. (Matt. 18:15-7) 

1 have overcome my naive 
opinion that a penitent offen- 
der should not be punished. I 
feel, however, that the offen- 
der should arrive at the proper 
punishment for himself. This 
was the admonition of John the 
Baptist to the Pharisees and 
Saducees to bring fruits wor- 
thy of repcntence. (Matt. 3;8) 

It sees then, once the guilt 
has been established and repen- 
ted of, that the job o( the dis- 
ciplinarian is to hear the sug- 

gestions of the offender for his 
punishment. Then the disci- 
plinarian evaluates the sugges- 
tions as compared to the 
ofiense. At this point the dis- 
ciplinarian and the offender 
work together to properly adjust 
the punishment. To do this the 
disciplinarian should explain 
the magnitude of the offense, 
all the people who may be var- 
iously influenced by the offense 
and the punishment, etc. The 
offender must be creatively re- 
sponsible in the manner in which 
he expresses his penitence in 
bis suggestions for punishment. 
The point is not so much to as- 
sert the universal Tightness of 
the rules, but rather to develop 
an understanding of the person 
wbo would advocate these 
rules. The beauty of this ap- 
proach is that, in exemplifying 
Christian characteristics In 
discipline, it teaches a respect 
for and an understanding of the 
rules in depth and not just a fear 
of punishment. 

The above is my understand- 
ing of redemptive justice in the 
New Testament sense. There- 
cent actions of the college 
seems to reflect more of a mer- 
ciful justice. That is to say, 
the disciplinarians try not to 
be as hard on the offender as 
they obviously could be in an 
attempt to give the offender a 
second chance. Even the people 
of Nineveh repented in sack 
cloth and ashes and were spared 
any other punishment. The re- 
pentence of Nineveh was a form 
of self-inflicted punishment. 
God did not give them a free 
second chance. 

My understanding of redemp- 
tive justice obviously could 
not be executed unless the of- 
fender penitently admitted bis 
guilt either in face of the char- 
ges or after the charges were 
shown true. (Matt. 18:15-17). 
I am not sure that this is what 
happened In the recent cases. 
These cases, however, should 
be considered closed. 

jack Metheany 

1 do not believe that the mem- 
bers of the administration are 
conniving, wicked men, whose 
sole intent is to infringe upon 
student rights. But it is evi- 
dent that certain members of 
the administration wbo partici- 
pated in recent disciplinary ac- 
tions are guilty of some 
irresponsible and culpable be- 

Now it is true that everyone 
occasionally must play the role 
of amateur diplomat. Each stu- 
dent must be sure that the finan- 
ciers of his education remain 
convinced of the merit of their 
investment. Employers are 
wise if they persuade theirem- 
ployer to believe that he is the 
best boss they ever had. Simi- 
larity Milligan College admin- 
istrators feel tactically obliged 
to placate its conservative con- 
stituency by tangibly disapprov- 
ing of incidents or actions of 
which the constituency alsodis- 
approves. Oftentimes placating 
the constituency is all thai is 
mean! by "the good of the Mil- 
ligan Community at large" or 
"the Interest of the college." 

The question is, however, when 
is fear of constituency disap- 
proval overridden by individual 
rights, justice, or duty to due 

It is manifestly obvious that 
patent rejection of policy is a 
violation of justice. It is fur- 
thermore clear that the admin- 
istration is just as obligated to 
follow the policy they set down 
as the students are. If the 
administration claim to be be- 
yond the jurisdiction of policy, 
they then set themselves up as 
Nietzschean supermen. So It 
is clear to me that if any ad- 
ministrator violates explicit 
policy without going through 
the proper channels of amend- 
ing or changing it, tben they are 
just as guilty of "breaking the 
rules'' as students who drink, 
dance, etc. Furthermore, if 
the administrator's breaking of 
the rules results in an injus- 
tice to others (i. e. suspension 
of student without due process), 
then that administrator is mor- 
ally as well as legally blame- 

Besides being morally and 
legally culpable, abnegation of 
policy can set a very danger- 
ous precedent. It may lead 
directly to indisc rim want re- 
jection of the sovereignty of 
policy, to spontaneity, whimsi- 
cality and personal discretion 
(or lack thereof) in meeting out 
the wishes of the administra- 
tor. In view of the seriousness 
of these charges, it is now ne- 
cessary to study the question, 
"Was policy followed orrenun- 
clated in the recent disciplinary 

The first case I wish to con- 
sider is Mr. Jefri Metheany. 
Mr. Metheany was formally 
charged for entering the girls' 
dorm without permission, and 
was given the prerogative to 
withdraw or go before the dis- 
ciplinary committee; the privi- 
lege of this choice is outlined 
in the disciplinary committee 
policy. After deliberating, Mr. 
Metheany chose to go before 
the disciplinary committee. His 
case was heard, and the disci- 
plinary committee voted to put 
him on social probation. The 
letter informing him of the de- 
cision was typed and ready to 
be sent out, until Dr. Johnson 
in Florida at the time, called 
for the disciplinary committee 
to reconvene in order to hear 
new evidence from the admis- 
sions committee. However, at 
Mr. Metheany's request, nonew 
Information was introduced. Yet 
the committee entirely revers- 
ed Its decision. The question is, 
what would induce the commit- 
tee to reverse its decision? 
Miss Harriet Miller claims that 
the answer to the question Is 
pressure by Dean Oakes, act- 
ing as Dr. Johnson's repre- 
sentative. Dean Oakes addres- 
sed the committee, making 
statements like 'There Is no 
alternative to suspending him." 
Harriet i ontinued saying that 
Dean Oakes responded nega- 
tively to all alternatives to sus- 
pension which the committee 
suggested. Hence, Mr. Me- 
theany was suspended. 

In the above case, the vio- 

lation of policy is not as clear- 
cut as the violation in the more 
recent case, but 1 seriously 
question the wholeseomness of 
the actions of Dean Oakes and 
Dr. Johnson. A parallel might 
be a case wherein the supreme 
court of a state makes a legal 
decision, and subsequently the 
governor calls the judges to 
reconsider the case, and sends 
to the judges, while tbey are 
reconsidering, a man in his be- 
half who says that he sees no 
alternative to a reveral of their 
decision. I seriously question 
the sovereignty or even the 
purpose of the disciplinary 
committee if the administra- 
tion can wield such authority 
over it. 

In cases of last weekend. In- 
volving the suspension of Mike 
Griffin, Greg Balser,Sandl Wil- 
son, etc., the breach of policy 
is more flagrant. The proce- 
dure of discipline is clearlyout- 
lined in the disciplinary com- 
mittee policy. Each individual 
suspected of a serious offense 
is to be given the choice of 
withdrawal or appearing before 
the disciplinary committee. If 
the student chooses to appear 
before the committee, he is to 
be given aformal list of charges 
twenty-four hours before the 
appearance. He is to be given 
a chance to bring witnesses to 
his defense. After the bearing, 
the committee is to decide upon 
the punishment, without the pre- 
sence of any non-committee 
personnel. In the cases of 
concern above, the disciplinary 
committee never met. The stu- 
dents involved were never given 
a list of charges. The students 
were never given the choice to 
withdraw. One student, in order 
to save her parents several hun- 
dred dollars, asked Mrs. Young 
if she could withdraw. Mrs. 
Young refused the request. In- 
dicating tbatthe decision had al- 
ready been made. The president 
simply made the decision to 
suspend more than half a do^en 

A source of pride for some 
of the administration is the 
progress made in student dis- 
cipline, from a single person's 
decision of a few years ago, to 
the "present situation' ' of a 
fully organltedcommittee.This 
week's disciplinary action has 
severely impaired, if not eli- 
minated altogether this pro- 
gress. Why does the discipli- 
nary committee exist at all? Is 
it merely a puppet organisation 
which decides on cases which 
the president allows it to, and 
hands down decisions which are 
sovereign only if the president 

Furthermore, if the president 
is exempt from the legal and 
moral responsibility of follow- 
ing policy and rules, are not the 
students and the faculty entitled 
to the same exemption? Are 
dormand social conduct rules 
negatible at anyone's discre- 
tion? And if policy may be re- 
buked « ithout proceeding 
through proper channels of ac- 
tion, why does it exist in the 
first place7 Why not call it 
"suggested routine" or "possi- 
ble action" instead?

policy for example. 
I the end of World War U, 
lerican public generally 
d into the delusion that 
nese Reds were not or- 
Communists of the 
type, lor tiny were re- 

garded as agrarian reformers. 
This credulity was reflected In 
American diplomacy during the 
war and in its aftermath. It 
should be noted that after the 
conclusion of the war the chief 
objective of American diplo- 
macy toward China was to 
reach a settlement between the 
National istsand theCommunlsts 
and to bring them Into a coali- 
tion government. When final- 
ly Marshall's mission failed in 
August, 1946, the Truman ad- 
ministration refrained from 
giving any substantial military 
aid to the Nationalists, thus 
hastening the fall of the China 
mainland into the hands of the 
Communists. Since, of all the 
nations in the world,China has 
the largest population and the 
longest continuous cultural 
heritage. Its Communization 
inevitably had grave conse- 
quences for global peace and 
security. That the American 
people have been directly in- 
volved in Korea and Vietnam 
shows clearly the tragic effect 
of the fall of China into the 
Communist orbit. 
Speaking of Korea, onecan- 
not help feeling sad for the 
Americans because of their un- 
believable naivety. Even a 
capable public servant of 
Acheson's caliber committed 
unpardonable blunders. In 

January 1950 Dean Acheson, 
then Secretary of State, de- 
clared that South Korea was 
outside the American defense 
perimeter and that its defense 
was a matter for the United 
Nations. This statement might 
be a true explanation of the 
then prevailing situation, but 
at a troubled time why he 
should b3ve made the state- 
ment at all baffled intelligent 
understanding. As interpret- 
ed by the Chinese andtheNorth 
Korean Communists, and quite 
rightly, It was an open admis- 
sion of America's military 
weakness and, worse still, an 
open invitation to Communist 
attack which was to come in a 
matter of less than six months. 
But when the Communists did 
launch an unprovoked attack, 
the Truman administration 
suddenly decided to take a 
strong stand leading to a bloody 
undeclared war of three years, 
which cost the Americans 
33,629 dead and 103, 2&4 wound- 
ed. These casulties could have 
been spared had the best brains 
of the Americans known the 
game of diplomacy and played 
it in the most tactful manner. 


Speaking of Vietnam, one will 
be further saddened by the way 
America prosecutes the war 
and conducts its diplomacy. 
That America as a world power 
second to none should have 
been engaged in a modern war 
with a no-win policy is the 
most fantastic in military his- 
tory. The strategy of "gradu- 
alism" has helped the enemy 
on his feet and has bogged the 
CI's In a quagmire. A pre- 
cious period of almost six 
years, since the Tonkin Cull 
resolution of August 7, 1964, 
has been irretrievably lost. 
As It is, the war has become 
a war of attrition and has eva- 
porated almost all its signifi- 
cance. It goes without saying 

, i ■ • ■ ■ ■ ■ ' d 

in war there should be resol- 
ution to carry it through to a 
victorious conclusion. In tne 
name of humanitarlanism also 
it should be shortened as much 
as possible. Before the enemy 
is made aware that all resis- 
tance will be futile he will never 
come to terms. It is nowonder 
that the Paris talks can only 
serve propaganda purposes for 
the enemy and are merely a 
waste of time as far as the 
Americans are concerned. Ad- 
mittedly, the problems con- 
cerning Vietnam cannot be 
solved by military means only 
and yet, since America Is at 
war, victory must precede dip- 
lomacy. The Vietnamlzation 
policy adopted by the Nixon 
administration is perhaps the 
best repair Job for the damages 
caused by the previous admin- 

Ultimate objective 

The ultimate objec- 
tive of course is to create a 
South Vietnamese government 
livable and workable, compar- 
able to the South Korean 
government. Given a reason- 
able period of time this objec- 
tive can be achieved. The 
enemy has lost more than 
600,000 able-bodied men and 
for a country with a population 
of only 21 million it is a grave 
loss. As the war proceeds the 
enemy deaths average 25,000 
weekly. Sooner or later, there- 
fore, he will be entirely 
exhausted. There is no ques- 
tion whatsoever that America 
will come out from the war 
honorably and Its aims fully 
accomplished. Nevertheless, 
the so-called war protesters 
among some segments of the 
people and even the so-called 
liberal Senators have put pres- 
sure on the administration, 
demanding that America, irre- 
spective of the consequences, 
must withdraw all Gl's from 
Vietnam within the shortest 
period of time possible, name- 
ly, in 18 months. In war and in 
diplomacy it would be stupidity 
to the last degree to let the 
enemy know what your next 
move would be. No player at 
a poker game playing for high 
stakes would expose his cards 
while betting on the value of 
his hand. Besides, can any 
sensible person not be able to 
foresee the real and potential 
danger of the unilateral Amer i- 
can withdrawal within such a 
short period of time? The 
enemy would take this as a 
sign of American weakness and 
cowardice and his appetite for 
further aggression would be 
whetted to the point where 
America would find it neces- 
sary to combat him again at a 
far greater risk involving far 
greater sacrifices. Only an 
ostrich burying its head in the 
sand can fail to see these most 
obvious consequents. 

Nevertheless, since diplo- 
macy and war are the two 
sides of the same coin, we 
should never discourage nego- 
tiations even with the worst 
enemy in the world. In diplo- 
macy as well as in war what 
is most important is to have a 
lull knowledge of the enemy 
and to set the main objective 
of one's own national interests 
in a clear perspective. 

Let us take the current re- 
sumption ol the Warsaw talks 

i. i 


between Washington and Peking 
for a further study. In this 
connection some pertinent 
questions may be posed: Do 
the American people generally 
realize the true nature of the 
enemy with whom they are to 
deal? What are the objectives 
of these talks In Warsaw that 
America is to achieve? We 
have heard It often said, that 
diplomatically America simply 
cannot Ignore the 800 million 
people on the mainland of China. 
I wish to point out, however, 
that It is not the 800 million 
Chinese people but the Peking 
regime that America Is to deal 
with. The 800 million Chinese 
are the victims of the Com- 
munist tyrannical rule and 
surely enough they will never 
be pleased If America wears 
kid gloves In accomodating 
their tormentor. Having made 
this distinction clear, we 
should take the next step to 
examine the true nature of the 
Peking regime. All totali- 
tarian regimes, for their own 
survival, must necessarily 
create enemies. Imaginary or 
real, within and without. The 
Chinese Communist regime is 
no exception. Ever since the 
fall of the China mainland into 
the hands of the Communists, 
America has been made the 
archenemy of the Peking re- 
gime. The anti-American feel- 
ings have been artificially 
created and intensified for the 
very purpose of directing the 
increasing discontentment of 
the enslaved Chinese to an 
imaginary enemy outside. Re- 
cently In a Joint New Year's 
Day editorial, the People's 
Daily, and the Red Flag, the 
three main mouthpieces of the 
Peking regime, have singled out 
the United States, as well as 
the Soviet Union, for malicious 
attack. As a matter of fact, 
the "American imperialists" 
have long been the whipping 
boys of the Maoists. 
Ant i-Amer lean 

This anti-American policy on 
the part of the Chinese Com- 
munists is positively irrever- 
sible. The Peking regime, 
especially after the death of 
Stalin In 1953, has fervently 
endeavored to assume hege- 
mony over all countries In 
East and Southeast Asia, by 
resorting to whatever means 
to attain the end— infiltration, 
subversion, espionage, and di- 
rect and indirect military in- 
volvement. By so doing the 
Chinese Communists are di- 
rectly responsible for the tur- 
bulent situation in that part 
of the world. Since America 
is the only major world power 
which is still deeply involved 
in the Far East and whose 
policy Is to afford opportuni- 
ties for peaceful development 
for all countries in that region. 

she has become the very ob- 
stacle in the path of Commu- 
nist expansionism. For this 
reason the Chinese Commu- 
nists are embarking on an 
aggressive design with the de- 
struction of America as the 
very objective, and they do 
believe that the "American 
Imperialists" are on the verge 
of a total collapse. With this 
understanding of the nature of 
the enemy, we may safely say 
that not until the Peking re- 
gime is overthrown, there can 
never be a normal diplomatic 
and cordial relationship be- 
tween the people of China and 
the American people. 

It is understood that the im- 
mediate objective of the re- 
sumption of the Warsaw talks 
Is to ease the tension, but 
tension can be likened to a 
headache which may be mere- 
ly a symptom but is not the 
real cause of a person's dis- 
ease. It can be momentarily 
relieved by taking a few as- 
pirin tablets but they may not 
do any good for the patient, if 
the cause of the disease is 
not properly treated. There- 
fore it is appropriate to raise 
the question whether the nego- 
tiations which may lead to a 
temporary ease of tension 
would have any bearing on 
America's national Interests 
in the long run. 


Granted that negotiations 
will tend to ease the tensions, 
the parties concerned must 
adopt a genuine attitude on a 
give-and-take basis atthecon- 
ference table. Does the Peking 
regime have this kind of at- 
titude? Can America reason- 
ably expect the outcome of the 
negotiations on such a basis? 
Before the resumption of the 
talks on January 20 this year, 
134 secret sessions at the am- 
bassadorial level were conduc- 
ted. Throughout these sessions 
the Peking regime adamantly 
Insisted on some of the most 
insensate demands based upon 
two principles; (1) The United 
States must guarantee Imme- 
diate withdrawal from Taiwan 
and the Taiwan Straits and dis- 
mantle all military in- 
stallations on Taiwan. (2) The 
United States must yield to 
Maoist viewpoints and demands 
if it wishes to sign an agree- 
ment of peaceful coexistence. 
Are these demands negotiable? 
Is America going to negotiate 
away NationalistChina's birth- 
rights as she did once before 
at the Yalta Conference in Feb- 
ruary 1945? 

If we are simply dictated by 
immediate interests with no 
thought of consequences and 
if we cannot be benefited by 
the lessons learned from his- 
tory, we are courting a certain

Matmen finish season with 1-9 

4TH IN S.I.W.A. — Freshman wrestler, Dave Steward was the 
only Milligan wrestler to place In the recent Southeastern Inter- 
collegiate Wrestling Association Championship at Athens, Georgia. 

The 1969-70 season was a re- 
building year for the Milligan 
wrestling team, and this year's 
1-9 record is In marked con- 
trast to last year's 11-2 finish. 

Last June's graduation 
claimed Southeastern Confer- 
ence finishers Pete Beevers, 
Tony Farrace, and Bruce Blt- 
tenbendcr as well as Tom Kim 
and pat Burke. 

Even worse, the Bulls lost 
seven of this year's starters 
(Larry Kurtz, Car 1 Poppa, Ran- 
dy Mulhera. Rick Schilling. 
Mike Dtckerson, Billy Johnson, 
and Eric Ellis) for reasons 
ranging from personal to In- 
jury to transfer.

Dave Steward won two indi- 
vidual matches belore being 
eliminated in the Southeastern 
Intercollegiate Wrestling As- 
sociation (S.I.W.A.) champion- 
ship held in Athens, Georgia 
on February 28. 

Steward, whoflnlshedfourih, 
was the only Milligan wrestler 
to place In the event. The meet 

marked the end of the worst 
wrestling season In Milligan 
history as the Buffs won one 
and lost nine. 

Brett Vounkin. who was the 
Buffs' brightest hope in the 
championship, suffered a shoul- 
der separation at Chattanooga 
which eliminated him for the 
season. The Auburn wrestler 

whom Brett tied in regular 
season play was In the finals 
of the meet. 

Tom Williams and Tom 
Hlckok were both beaten by 
men who eventually took third 
In the S.I.W.A. Hickok held a 
large lead on his man before, 
in Coach Orvel Crowder's 
words, he "ran out of gas."

freshman Dave Steward as the 
most Improved wrestler on the 
team, closely followed by Rick 
Hensley. Both came to Milli- 
gan with no college experience. 

Steward began the season with 
no regular starting berth and 
ended it as the only Milligan 
wrestler to place in the South- 
eastern Intercollegiate Wrest- 
ling Association (S.I.W.A.). 

Cocksure Brett Younkin was 
easily the most outstanding 
wrestler on the team this year.

match, followed by Williams 
with 2.80 and Hickok with 2. 

The Buffs were outscored by 
their opponents 262-127. Tom 
Hickok had the most Individual 
pins with two. He also had the 
quickest pin when he defeated 
his Western Carolina opponent 
with 56 seconds gone In the 
first round.

Buff nine prepared to earn NAIA bid 

Milllgan launches a 35 game 
schedule on March 21 with a 
home game against Cumberland 

The outlook lor the Buffs this 
season is extremely bright. Re- 
turning pitchers include Dave 
Phillips, Cayle Cox, Stan Kin- 
nett, and Eddie Carland. Dan- 
ny Saunders Is the incumbent 
at first base. 

Reld Taylor, a starter at third 
base a year ago has moved to 
second base to help plug the 
gap left by the graduation of 
Paul Molchan. Burt Sparks re- 
turns at shortstop, johnny Hut- 
ton has moved from the out- 
field to third base. 

Danny Smith is a returnee in 
centerfleld and Bruce Kregloe 
is a returning starter In right 
field. Gary Elliott returns to 
fight for a second base job and 
Joe Smith is back to push for 
an outfield job. 

Mike Mutterspaugh, the 

team's leading hitter, returns 
for his second season as 

The rest of the squad in- 
cludes pitchers Dave Turpin, 
Paul Wilson, Ed Randolph, and 
Monte Baldwin. Catchers Rog- 
er Jackson and Tom Williams, 
first basemen Rex parrls, first 
basemen-outfielder Ed Rlngley, 
shortstop Mark Grt-ssinger, 
third basemen Larry McKln- 
ney, and outfielders Danny H. 
Smith In left and Warren Nigh 
In center. 

Good weather has aided the 
progress of the squad thus far. 
The team spirit Is very high 
and a hustling attitude is pre- 
valent. The team goal Is not 
only to improve upon last sea- 
son's 11-14 mark, but to gain 
a bid to the NAIA District 

The hitting, pitching, and 
team defense look good at this 
juncture. The team also has

3olfers' high scores 
due to coarse course 

The eight men comprising the 
970 edition of the Milllgan Golf 
Team were chosen in a 36 hole 
luallfying event held on March 

and 10 at the Eluabethton 
Job* Course. 

The qualifiers and their 
cores are listed as follows: 
John Black 79-79 158 

Ron Met/ready 80-80 160 
i. Dick Rock 82-81 163 

. Tom Owens 85-85 170 

. Mark Roth 87-85 172 

. Dan Hasselbeck 86-87 173 
'. Gary Morreil 85-89 174 
■. Bruce Moore 90-89 179 

Although Coach Harry Wall 
'as not particularly pleased 
'ilh the results, he was quick 
a note that the extensive main- 
enance work on the course was 

probably a factor causing some 
of the high scores. 

The most exciting aspect of 
the event was probably the race 
for last place. Gary Edwards 
retained the spot for the second 
straight season by posting a 
walloping 116-111 227. 

Gray Bowen scrambled to a 
221 to edge out last year's 
runnerup John Engleby by one 
stroke for the next to last posi- 
tion. Firing a 54-55 109 on the 
final 18 holes of play, Engleby 
had one of the hottest rounds 
of his career. 

The Buffs open up their 12 
match season at home on April 
3 against Tennessee Wesleyan. 
The match will start at 1:00 
p.m. at the Ell^abethton Golf 

average speed on the base-paths. 
Milllgan, Carson-Newman, and 
Lincoln Memorial University 
are the top contenders In the 
VSAC East. 

The first and second place 
teams continue to the VSAC 
Tournament. The winner o( the 
VSAC Tournament gets a bid 
to the NAIA District. Milllgan 
can also qualify by posting 20 
or more wins this season. 

All single home games start 
at 3:00 except where noted. 
All doubleheaders start at 1:00.

Buffalo track team will be 
stronger than last year, 
but still weak in hurdles 

The Milligan track team 
opens the season on April 4 
with a meet at Brevard. 

The Buffs will participate in 
two triangular meets, the Dav- 
idson Relays, the Tennessee 
Intercollegiate Athletic Con- 
ference and the Volunteer State 
Athletic Conference meets in 
addition to the six dual meets. 

Dan Clifton, Tom Manus, 
Terry DuBoise, Ron Worrell, 
and Jim McIIwain are return- 
ing from last year's squad. 
Dan Clifton will be very strong 
once again in the 100 and 220 
yard dashes. In the T.I.A.C. 
Indoor Meet last month in Knox- 
ville, Dan won the College Di- 
vision 6U yard dash with a 
time of 6.5 seconds. Tom Man- 
US will be strong in the 880 
yard run. Tom finished se- 
cond in the College Division 
880 yard run at the T.I.A.C. 
with a time of 2:05.9. Terry 
DuBoise, Ron Worrell, and Jim 
Mcllwain are working with the 
javelin, shotput, and the discus. 

Tom Muth and Dave Rich- 
hart who ran cross-country last 
fall will help bolster the long 
distance events. Rodney Atkin- 
son is a leading contender for 
the pole vault. Tim McCellan 
should come on strong in the 
high jump once his ankle is at 
full strength, A scarcity of 
hurdlers exists at this lime 
and any prospects are welcome. 

It is too early to give a gooa 
picture of the team. The team 
will be weak, but stronger than 
last year, according to Coach 
Duard Walker.

Finals schedule discussed 
at spring faculty meeting 

In the last faculty meeting, 
Thursday, March 5, 1970, three 
Issues were presented, i-'irst 
the faculty members were In- 
formed of the administrative 
changes to be made next year. 
They also discussed granting an 
honorary degree, and the finals 
schedule for spring semester. 

The Milligan College faculty 
meet regularly only twice every 
year, with seldom ever mor^ 
than two unscheduled mee'ings. 

The first faculty meeting of 
the year is generally a faculty 
workshop with a somewhat open 
discussion. All faculry mem- 
bers are expected to attend this 

The other regularly sched- 
uled meeting is near the end of 
the spring semester when the 
faculty votes on the degrees to 

be gr.mted. 

One or rwo other meeting 
are usually called during tin- 
year to present matters which 

I i tlier Dr. less Johnson, pre- 
sident ot the college, or Guy 
Oakes, academic dean, presides 
over the meetings. 

Since the formation of the 
Academic Committee a few 
years ago, most matters are 
taken up there instead of in 
faculty meetings. The faculty 
is not a policy making body. 
They do discuss pertinent is- 
sues, though. 

Also, they are occasionally 
called upon to ratify a major 
decision of the Academic Com- 
mittee. Two examples were the 
humanities program and any 
changes in schedule. 

" Malaguena ■ 
Snow," whKn 

Jackie Hills sang "Where 
is Love," which li> from the 
musical OLIVER. Beverly En- 
och sang "I'll Never I all In

her guitar, Kathy Polcncch san^ 
"Try It Again," She also sans 
with Brcnda Varner "i n til Its

Mr. Wells, a history major 
from Cincinnati, Ohio, feels 
lhat Milllgan's most Immed- 
iate concern is that of dis- 
ciplinary procedure. It is Mr. 
Well's belief that MUligan can- 
not establish a working, and 
Christian relationship among 
faculty, administration and stu- 
dents as long as there exists 
a disciplinary pollcythat leaves 
such little alternative to sus- 

Mr. Wells feels that the ans- 
wer to this problem lies in 
creating workable alternat- 
ives to immediate and out- 
right suspension. 

Mr. Wells cites mainten- 
ance as another area of con- 
cern and feels that the cre- 
ation of a paid student main- 
tenance department, to help 
to allieviate the present pro- 

Mr. Wells believes that an- 
other "must" Is the creation 
of a new Student Council con- 
stitution which would embody 
a wider scope of responsibil- 
ities for the students. All stu- 
dent organizations, then, should 
be under this one constitution. 
Mr. John Rohrbaugh Is a 
junior psychology major from 
Canton, Ohio. 

Mr. Rohrbaugh is not run- 
ning on a reform platform nor 
personally advocating any 
changes in rules or policy. 
He feels that the approach to 
specific student concerns Is 
more important than the Issues 
themselves at this time. 

Mr. Rohrbaugh's suggestions 
for this ' "approach" include; 
fa) a Student Council that is 
constitutionally and adminis- 
tratlvelyefficient; (b) the es- 
tablishment of definite means 
of communication between stu- 
dents, student government, and 

administration; employing the 
effective use of all dorm coun- 
cils; and (c) the immediate 
hearing, discussion, and action 
upon specific student concerns 
by Student Council's legisla- 
tive power. 

Mr. Rohrbaugh concludes 
that we must first organize a 
serious, responlsble, 3ne' ener-

The STAMPEDE was award- 
ed a very good or second class 
rating by the Associated Col- 
legiate Press at the University 
of Minnesota in the 82nd All 
American Critical Service. 

The ACP is a national or- 
ganization that provides ser- 
vices to college newspapers 
such as sponsoring workshops, 
sending out news sheets, and 
rating newspapers. 

The ACP has a system set 
up to rate college papers ac- 
cording to other papers in the 
same class. Approximately 600 
newspapers were evaluated. 

Papers published from Sep- 
tember, 1969, to January, 1970, 
were Judged on the basis of 
coverage and content, writing 
and editing, editorial leader- 
ship, physical appearance, and 

If superior achievement Is 
reached In any of these areas, 
that area is awarded a Mark of 
Distinction. The STAMPEDE 
averaged very good ratings In 
all categories and received a 
Mark of Distinction In the edi- 
torial leadership category. 

The Judge of the paper 
commented that the editorials 
and the articles on poverty were 
very good and that using sev- 
eral pages for an editorial on 
advice and dissent was a '•com- 
ing thing" in newspaper Jour- 

The ratings, however, were 
not all good. The Judge felt 
that straight news stories could 
be cut down and thus prevent 
wordy articles. 

In the area of photography, 
comments were made to the 
effect that too many shots were 
obviously posed or too crowd- 

The same rating of very good 
was given to the STAMPEDE 
when it was Judged by the Na-

The junior senator from Ten- 
nessee, Senator Baker is ser- 
ving his first term of office. 
He was elected In 1966. So 
far, his record in the Senate 
has been quite outstanding. Al- 
ready he has had a chance at 
the minority leadership. He 
is a promising young senator 
with a very bright future. 

Senator Baker, the son of 
a state politician, was born in 
Tennessee and attended schools 
here. He finished by attending 
the University of Tennessee 
Law School. 

Married to Joy Dlrksen, 
Jie daughter of the late Everett 
Dlrksen, Senator Baker has 
two children.

publican ever elected to the 
Senate from Tennessee by pop- 
ular vote. 

submit to defeat, the dean 
would say, ''What will the stu- 
dents do?" 

Dr. Orvel Crowder remem- 
bers that there were many 
times when. In the e3rly 
1950's , Dean Oakes would come 
back to school at night to fix 
plumbing or wireing or to fire 
a furnace. He performed, a- 
long with each day's acade- 
mic duties, a great number of 
the tasks which Mr. Kyte and 
his maintenance crew take care 
of now. 

Dr. Robert Wetzel, who will 
take Guy Oakes' place as Aca- 
demic Dean, has nothing but 
the most profound praise for 
his colleague. He points out 
that Dean Oakes has made spe- 
cial efforts to help acquaint 
him with his new Job before 
he actually assumes the of- 

In 1966, Dean Oakes asked 
Dr. Wetzel to become Dean 
of Summer School to see if 
he might like administrative 

In 1968, the dean suggested 
to Dr. Johnson that Dr. Wet- 
zel be appointed to chair the 
Self-Study steering committee. 
The suggestion was accepted 
and Dr. Wetzel found himself 
in a position to Increase his 
knowledge about all areas of 
the MUligan Community. He 
considers this his second 
training phase. 

Dr. Wetzel added to his com- 
ments that when he traveled 
for MUligan, the one person 
most asked about was Dean 

A member of the Milligan 
community who was a class- 
mate of Mr. Webb Sutton (donar 
of Webb and Sutton Halls) said, 
in speaking of the retirement 
of Dean Oakes, "He has al- 
ways reminded me. In ap- 
pearance and manner, of Dr. 
Hopwood. He has the same 
love for people that Dr. Hop- 
wood had, and as long as he was 
dean, the spirit of Dr. Hop- 
wood was present on the 

The descriptions by these 
people are more complete when 
one considers a certain aspect 
of Dean Oakes* early life. 
Raised near Milligan. he was 
one of some half-dozen boys 
(and one girl) whose mother 
had a unique approach to the 
subject of chores; "If you want

that wood pile cut up and look- 
ing nice, and I'll cook dinner." 

Dean Oakes Is a worker; 
has approached his Job at Mil- 
ligan practically and has ful- 
filled his tasks faithfully and 
willingly. As head oftheacade- 
mic area of the college, he has 
taken the lead in the scholas- 
tic advances of the school, with 
his highest achievement being 
in the year of 1960. Milligan, 
in that year, was fully accred- 
ited by the Southern As- 

In his office, the dean may 
often be seen reading to famil- 
iarize himself with the latest 
educational trends. He has a 
speaking acquaintance with 
America's leading educators 
and administrators. 

He has also devoted his en- 
ergies to securing a competi- 
tive pay scale for the Mil- 
ligan faculty, even at times 
when he knew his own salary 
would not be raised. 

At present. Dean Oakes and 
his wile Rhea live in Pine- 
crest. Mrs. Oakes is a first 
grade teacher in the Johnson 
City school system. Their son 
Jim is also Involved in the area 
of education at Knoxville. 

The dean's hobbles Include 
avid interests in croquet, color 
television, fishing, and his 
wife's pie baking.

The STAMPEDE, Friday, Apr. 10, 1970- Page 3 

Students share in service 

This year has provided in- 
xeased opportunities for ser- 
vice and sharing by those who 
orm the congregation of the 
;olleglate church. 
I Dr. Robert 0. Fife accepted 
ie call to the pulpit of this 
:hurch upon the resignation of 
3T. A.D. Dennison, Jr. Since 
ieptember. Dr. Fife has been 
ilded in his work by the vol- 
intory assistance of about 
hlrty students who form with 
lim, the worship committee. 

It Is Dr. Fife's belle! that 
he collegiate church should 
xaln future church leaders. 
The committee handles all of 
he responsible tasks involved 
with the function of the church. 
Several new experiences have 
:ome to the congregation so 
,'ar this year. First, of all, 
ie congregation has decided 
:o apply its financial steward- 
ship, beyond expenses, to the 
support of missions involving 
MUligan graduates. 

It has pledged fifty dollars 
per month to the support of 
Wayne and Kathy Fife In their 
#ork with the Christian Ser- 
vte Center of Chicago. In this 
#ay, the congregation a Ids them 
in a ministry of reconcllation 
In the ghetto of a major city. 

Fifty dollars has also been 
pledged to the work of Dr. and 
Mrs. Bill Nice of Chidamoyo 
Christian Hospital in Rhodesia. 
With the support, the congre- 
gation aids a ministry of heal- 
ing for body and soul. 

The services of the church 
have been Interspersed with 
special services. A service 
was held In which the women 
served as elders and deacons. 

On Palm Sunday, a special 
communion service was held.

if sub-area 

A few weeks ago Dr. Wil- 
liam Cwalmey was named 
chairman of the newly created 
sub-area of languages at MU- 
ligan College. 

The new area is a subdiv- 
ision of the humanities area 
which is under the direction 
of Dr. Robert Wetzel. Be- 
cause of the expansion of Mil- 
llgan's foreign language de- 
partment, the creation of a 
sub-area seemed advisable. 

Dr. Cwaltney has super- 
vised the operations of the 
language lab for two years 
now. He took over when Mr. 
Shaffer, a professor of Ger- 
manic languages, took a leave 
of absence to work on his doc- 

The duties of Dr. Gwaltney's 
new postion consist of the main- 
tence of the language lab, at- 
tending faculty meetings, or- 
dering supplies, for the de- 
partment, organizing the area 
and doing the paper work.

professor at MUligan who has

these events have gained spir- 
itual insights that have en-

beyond the Milligan campus.

Student Council is the only official channel through which flows 
student opinion to Milllgan faculty and administration. As a re- 
presentative body of student government. Student Council leader- 
ship Is only as effective as the Student Council elections. 

The appeal is time-worn but the message' must always be re- 
peated: VOTEI Take the one minute before'class or after class 
to cast a ballot next Wednesday/the election table will be in the 
foyer of the Administration Building. The right to vote Is guar- 
anteed to all students registered this semester regardless of 
class status, number of credit hours being carried this semester, 
or address (commuter or dormitory resident). 

This year the presidential candidates are working together 
to make their campaigns issue-centered, not personality-cen- 
tered. They have agreed not to distribute posters or bulletins 
to the student body which attract a mere emotional response. 
Instead, they have decided to meet with the students on a per- 
sonal basis In optional dormitory meetings so that with infor- 
mal question-and-answer periods they can familiarize the stu- 
dents with their platforms. 

This Is serious and responsible leadership. No less is ex- 
pected of each Individual member of the Milllgan student body? 
listen and discuss specific concerns. Vote when the opportunity 
is given. 

Surveying the Survey 

The journalism majors of the Associated Collegiate Press are 
no more skilled at evaluating the STAMPEDE than the average 
Milllgan College student. Or at least they both agree. 

Over 250 students completed the newspaper questionnaire In 
convocation last week.Only slightly more than \% of the respond- 
ents never read the STAMPEDE. Seventy-six percent of the stu- 
dents agree that the STAMPEDE is an effective campus news- 
paper. The "physical appearance" of the STAMPEDE received 
the most positive response ( 70% called It above average), fol- 
lowed in order by "coverage and content", "editorial leader- 
ship," and "sports coverage" (a sharp drop to 43% who called 
it above average). Ten percent of those surveyed charged the news- 
paper with definite editorial bias and 16% agreed that there Is 
no place for dissent in a Milligan College newspaper. 

One of the major criticisms of the STAMPEDE was the lack 
of coverage that has been given to the campus activities. The 
reason for this has not necessarily been that of neglect by the 
newspaper staff. A new policy ol student activity coverage was 
initiated this year to guarantee that no cluh or organization 
would receive favoritism in reporting. Each club and organ- 
ization must take the initiative by submitting us own articles 
concerning events and achievements ol Interest to the student 
body. We urge once more that the clubs 3nd organizations on 
the Milllgan campus do their fellow students a favor; let them 
know In what projects and services you are employed. 

(The following article Is a 
section from a larger article In 
10, 1970, written by Virginia 
Mollenkott, "Teachers, Stu- 
dents, and Selfishness in the 

Endurance of selfish haggling 
about seniority, rank, and pri- 
vilege is one of the occupational 
hazards of teaching. In Chris- 
tian education, this haggling Is 
usually disguised and carefully 
submerged; but it often reas- 
serts itself in a strangulating 
control over student behavior 
thaj extends even to attempts 
at Thought control. 

It is time that Christian 
teachers consider the implica- 
tions of Matthew 20;26 and 27 
"Whosoever will be great 
among you, let him be your 
minister; and whosoever will 
be chief among you, let him 
be your servant," 

The fact is that students were 
not made for teachers, but 
teachers for students. Students 
are not paid for studying; teach- 
ers are paid for teaching be- 

cause they are the servants of 
. their students, and preachers 
are paid for preaching be- 
cause they are the servants 
(ministers) of their Congre- 
gations. Few would argue with 
this principle; yet relativelyfew 
really demonstrate the reality 
of all this In their classroom or 
pulpit demeanor. 

Teaching Is too often a one- 
way street, a doling out of facts 
and attitudes that the students 
know they must believe or pre- 
tend to believe If they are to 
pass muster. Often it does not 
occur to teachers to listen to 
what their students have to 
say except during factual and 
perfunctory quizzing in which 
the student attempts to read 
the teacher's mind and thus win 
approval. This student subser- 
vience Is, of course, the very 
opposite of the way things ought 
to be: the teacher-servant must 
get himself out of the way when 
learning requires student arti-

John Carroll University 
to offer humanities major 
beginning next September 

Cleveland, Ohio - (I.P.) — 
Beginning next September John 
Carroll University will offer 
its first interdepartmental ma- 
jor — an undergraduate pro- 
gram in humanities, leading 
to the A.B. or A. B. (Classics) 

The heart of the hunamlties 
major Is a minimum of 36 
hours of specialized study, 
most of which will take place 
m the student's junior and sen- 
ior years. The study will be 
divided into three 12-hour seg- 
ments In the area of fine arts, 
and literature, with emphasis 
on reading in the original lan- 

Within this framework, a stu- 
dent will choose one of 
four historical periods on which 
to focus his study. He will ac- 
complish this by devoting at 
least hall of his required 36 
hours (credit) to either Clas- 
sical Studies, Nineteenth Cen- 
tury Studies, Twentieth Cen- 
tury Studies, or American 

"The program is designed 
to appeal primarily to the in- 
dependently minded student, the 
person who comes to the Uni- 
versity for the other than spe- 
cific career preparation," ex- 
plained Roger A. Welchans, 
assistant professor and chair- 
man of the Department of Fine 

Basic requirements for die 
humanities major will be the 
same as for other A.B. pro- 
grams now in effect and will 
occupy most of the student's 
first two years. In addition 
to the 36 hours of spec lal- 
Ized study, the student will be 
free to choose up to a max- 
imum of 29 hours of elect- 

The electlves could be used 
to concentrate further in a 
specialized field, and such as 
Fine Arts, or to take general 
studies, or In some cases to 
qualify professionally In Edu- 

Close faculty supervision and 
counseling will be provided to 
every student in the humani- 
ties program , Welchans said. 

The degree A.B. (Classics) 
will, be conferred on humanit- 
ies' students who complete 
four upper-division Latin 
courses as well as meeting 
the standard A.B. require- 
ments. In addition to course 
work, majors must pass an 
undergraduate humanities pro- 
gram test and a comprehen- 
sive exam prior to the granting 
of the degree. 

Slon of honest doubt. Few teach- 
ers encourage their students to 
evaluate everything they are 
told and to bold fast only that 
which is good (this would in- 
clude, of course, the discard- 
ing of any falsehoods, or semi- 
truths, the teacher himself may 
be guilty of disseminating). 

Few teachers have the cour- 
age to invite open criticism of 
tbelr Ideas and open question- 
ing of their methods. Few teach- 
ers strive to teach students 
the method of thinking required 
In the subject at hand, so that 
eventually the student will no 
longer need a teacher but will 
be able to arrive at reasonable, 
accurate conclusions on his 
own. Yet this is what teaching 
Is all about - and what stu- 
dents of the seventies will cla- 
mor for. 

Why are so few teachers 
willing to listen, to pay re- 
spectful attention to students, 
to stand upon an equal plane in 
every way except that of ed- 
ucational advantage, and to en- 
courage eventual Independence 
of themselves? I submit to you 
that the root of the problem is 
ego. Insecure defensiveness, 
sheer selfishness. And it is 
sad, indeed, that the problem 
should be as acute in Christ- 
Ian education as It is In the 
secular world — perhaps even 
more acute. 

The fact that we Christians 
believe the Bible to be the 
Word of God does not confer 
Infallibility upon our interpre- 
tations of that book or any other 
book; aad If the fountain of 
truth is to be preserved from 
stagnation. It must be p* -mined 
to flow freely through o t sn de- 
bate and honest discussion. 

In the educational 
subject can be banned; in the 
wrestling match to liberate 
men's minds from the bond- 
age of Ignorance, the teacher 
must restrain himself from tak- 
ing unfair advantage, yet may 
not restrain his students from 
any intellectual holds they may 
wish to use. Only through the 
revealing of himself can the 
teacher learn what is needed 
in this situation at this moment.

D o You Envy This Man? 

Have you ever put yourself 
In the position of the college 
administrator? I( you have, you 
might just possibly get some 
Idea of the tremendous frustra- 
tions Involved. 

In the first place, a man Is 
usually picked for college ad- 
ministration because he Is ac- 
ceptable to the majority of the 
board of trustees. Theyseehim 
as a fund-raiser, a diplomat, a 
disciplinarian, an academic 
leader, and more. They install 
the man with all due solemnity 
and pomp and then set him loose 
to build and develop their in- 

It Is at this point that an 
Increase of grey hair begins to 
show and lines ol age begin to 

First of all, the person now 
saddled with the responsibility 
of running a college must find 
a way to work constructively 
with all segments of the school 
community. This calls for 
diplomacy and even then It may 
not work if everyone wants to go 
his own way. He has fellow ad- 
ministrators left over from his 
predecessor's term of office. 
He may have a faculty that feels 
that no one cares about their 
opinion. He has a board of 
trustees, most of whom are de- 
tached from the school and Its 
needs because they live so far 
from the school, that gets to- 
gether only twice a year. To 

this last group he finds himself 
In the very serious position of 
having to operate the school in 
their behalf and yet be aware, 
as they may well not be, that 
changes in general social con- 
text may alter the school's re- 
levency to the point that changes 
may be needed in rules, curri- 
culum, facilities, or some other 
area. How can he keep the 
school relevent if he is limited 
in the exercise of his personal, 
on-the-spot, involved Judgment? 
He Is at the school and knows 
Its day to day needs. The board 
is not at the school and is not 
so aware of the needs and cir- 

Today, the college adminis- 
trator is the target of pressure 
that should never be brought to 
bear In a decent education sys- 
tem. He may have the highest 
of character. Yet to keep the 
school going, he needs funds 
and endowments. To get these 
he must sometimes appear to 
cater to the whim of the giver. 
He is accused at this point of 
letting others run the scbool

If the students come up with 
what may to him appear as a 
valid request for a change of 
some form or other and the 
administrator supports it, he 
may be challenged for "giving 
In" to the students. 

On top of pressure from bene- 
factors, board, faculty, fellow 

University president 
discusses discipline 

Iowa Clry, la. - (I.P.) — 
President Wlllard L. Boyd of 
The University of Iowa has 
named former Iowa Chief Just- 
ice Theodore G. Garfield to 
be a hearing officer to ad- 
judicate cases of student non- 
academic misconduct. Pre- 
sident Boyd declared that the 
University can not function ef- 
fectively without an operative 
judicial system. 

"If the University is to be 
allowed to continue to manage 
its own internal affairs in a 
relatively autonomous manner, 
free of outside interferences, 
political or otherwise, the In- 
stitution must be willing and 
able effectively to perform the 
essential governance functions. 

"One of these functions is 
a judicial system capable of 
enforcing the institution's rules 
and regulations, if the institu- 
tion is unwilling or unable to 
perform this function, other 
mechanisms will be Imposed 
externally or, conceivably, the 
right of self-government itself 
might be substantially impaired. 

"The academic community 
has a life of Its own and re- 
sponsibility to ensure that Its 
orderly processes and distinct 

set of values are preserved. 

"The Important question, 
therefore, Is not simply 
whether a person's conduct vol- 
lated the civil law, In which 
case the civil law Is adequate 
to handle the situation, but 
whether their conduct violated 
those distinct values which ne- 
cessarily govern the relation- 
ships of people within the ac- 
ademic community. 

"If so that community has 
the responsibility of imposing 
its own sanctions to prevent 
further violations, and, if need 
be, to sever entirely the in- 
dividual's status with the com- 
munity for serious or re- 
peated violations. Accordingly, 
I feel It is Imperative that the 
University community have an 
adequate and effective judicial 
system to deal with violations 
of University rules and regul- 

President Boyd's actions fol- 
lowed a move by the Student 
Senate to withdraw student 
members from the Committee 
on Student Conduct, before 
which charges of disruption 
against six students were be- 
ing heard. 

administrators, and students, 
the college administrator must 
deal with parental pressure. 
What does he do with the fol- 
lowing situation? 

The parents of Student A have 
always been very strict. The 
college is supposed to prepare 
this person for life as ir is and 
to develop this student's char- 
acter to a point of self- 
discipline and integrity. To 
whom does the scbool owe ihe 

This is Just an example; an 
all loo common one. Magnify 
all of the varieties of situations 
to be found by the number of 
persons reglsteredat the school 
and look at It from the adminis- 
trator's point of view. It is a 
nightmare. And It is all his. 

It would seem that someone 
on the student level if not else- 
where would try to see it from 
the other guy's point of view 
once Id a while. The answer Is 
so obvious that it Is ridiculous, 
that It is so often overlooked. 
If the college administrator 
were given a little more support 
and a lot less ridicule, be just 
might be able to do some good 
for more people concerned. 

Happy will be the day that 
the administrator can go before 
the board to make suggestions 
and proposals with support from 
the faculty, students, alumni, 
and administration. 

Take time to "walk in his 
shoes." Maybe, 11 you try, you 
might find your sympathies 
broadening a little. 

Alumnus writes from Seoul 

(Ed. note: This letter from 
Mr. Kim was provided to the 
STAMPEDE for publication by 
Professor Lone Sisk.) 

I finally arrived In Seoul. It 
has changed very much. 1 
couldn't recognize the streets 
and buildings and schools, and 
I couldn't speak Korean very 
well. 1 Just can't speak the 
words. They are not coming 
out of my mouth. I am going to 
have to practice a lot. Many 
people are mad at me because 
I look like a Korean and I 
can't express myself the way 
I want to express myself. 

Today 1 finished registra- 
tion in medical college. Class- 
es start on March 5th. Oh boy, 
1 am scared to compete with all 
these brilliant students. 1 will 
do my best to make my old 
Alma Materproud of me. Class- 
es start at 8:30 and go to 
5:30. After supper 1 have to 
return to anatomy laboratory 
and stay to 9:30. Oh boy, I'll 
die. Please cheer me. 

I am very busy now adjust- 
ing to food, language and cus- 
toms. Oh, 1 love the U. S, 1 
love U. S. customs. we 
are the luckiest people In the 
world. But no one recognizes It 
unless he goes abroad to do 
something. I used to complain 
about the food, faculty mem- 
bers, and the poor athletic pro- 
gram at Mllligan, but I'm not 
going to complain about anything 
toward Mllligan and the U, S. 
anymore. I would like to make 
an apology for not being a good 
student. 1 thank you for every- 
thing while I was there. I will 
never forget you, and your hu- 
man friendship, 1 am going to 
miss you, I'm going to miss 
your cook - outs pretty soon. 
Please send me some ham- 
burgers and hotdogs. I would 
like to have some right now. 

Please give my regards to 
your good students and faculry 
members, my unforgetable 

Very truly yours,

a game with Appalachian State 
Monday, a doubleheader with 
Emory & Henry Wednesday, a 
contest with Lincoln Memorial 
to open the VSAC seasona week 
from today, and a game with 
Maryvllle the 18th. 

Milllgan enters today's game 
with a 4-6 record without play- 
ing at Anglin Field this year, 
inclement weather conditions 
and the refusal of an opponent 
to remain for two games has 
postponed actual on the field 
play until today. 

Milligan tuned up for this 
afternoon's game by lashing 
out thirteen hits in a 10-1 
victory over Cumberland Col- 
lege lost Wednesday. Milllgan 
wiped out a 1-0 deficit In the 
fifth inning by pushing across 
three runs. Bruce Kregloe add- 
ed a solo homer in the sixth 
to give the Buffs a 4-1 edge. 

The Buffs put the icing on

started the season putting the 

right foot forward by edging 
Guilford 5-4. Guilford came 
back the next day to outslug 
the Buffs 18-8. 

High Point defeated MUligan 
11-2, Furman dropped the Buff s 

3-7, and 8-0, and Georgia Tech 
took the Buffs 8-4 In Atlanta. 
Milllgan looks much better 
as a unit and should show 
steady improvement the re- 
minder of the campaign. 

Mllllgan's 1970 tennis sche- 
dule has not exactly started 
off with a bang. The team has 
not won a single one of its 
first five matches. 

On April 1 and 4, the Buffs 
met Maryvllle and Carson- 
Newman respectively and lost 
9-0 on both occasions. Mike 
Wilson and Jack Metheany 
fought three hard sets before 
being defeated. 

MUligan met King on April 
7 and lost 6-3. Metheany won 
his individual match 4-6, 6-3 
6-2, Bill Vanderwall won 8-6, 
6-0, and the doubles team of 
Vanderwal and Gary Davis, 
defeated their opponents 6-1,

Buffs faced Mars Hill and lost 
5-4. Picking up wins were Jack

Although not overjoyed by his 
team's performance, Coach

With only two returning reg-

Milllgan Golf Team Is unde-

The Buffs won their opening 
match against Tennessee Wes-

on the topic "The Role of 
Churches In Metropolitan Soc- 
iety." The school of religion 
at USC specializes in this area. 

Also at USC he may con- 
duct seminar studies on such 
Issues as religion and race 
and on certain other social pro- 
blems as related to the church. 

It Is also possible that Dr. 
Fife will attend the World Con- 
vention of Churches of Christ 
in Australia during October. 

In 1965 at the last conven- 
tion in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 
Dr. Fife was appointed to the 

executive committee of the con- 
vention, and has served on that 
committee since then. 

Dr. Fife Is taking his sab- 
atical leave In connection with 
a program approved for Mll- 
Ugan In the spring of 1968. 

Mllllgan's professors are 
given the option to take either 
a semester or a full school 
year's leave with full salary. 
During this time they are ex- 
pected to be doing further study. 

Before going, the professor 
must submit a program of act- 

ivity for approval by the aca- 
demic committee. They go with 
the understanding that theywlll 
return to Mllllgan for the next 
academic year. 

Professors are granted the 
privilege of taking a sabbatical 
leave in order of their sen- 
iority here. Two professors 
may go each school year. 

The sabbatical program Is 
now in its second year at Mll- 
llgan. So far Miss Ivor Jones, 
Miss Hale, Dr. Webb, and Mr. 
Price have taken sabbaticals.

The results of the research 
made by the Student Council 
committee on men's discip- 
linary measures and enforce- 
ment, were submitted to Pre- 
sident Johnson and the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee last Fri- 

The recommendation was 
formulated by the council com- 
minee April 1. And presented 
to Student Council the next 
day. After much discussion, 
senior representative Rod Ir- 
vln moved the recommenda- 
tion he accepted. It was se- 
conded by sophomore repre- 
sentative Gary Davis and 

The recommendation calls 
for a Men's Disciplinary En- 
forcement Council made up of 
representatives from each 

' ; 

men's dormitory. The rep- 
resentatives will be nomi- 
nated by each dormitory and 
voted upon by the whole stu- 
dem body. 

The council will act only 
at the request of the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee to en- 
force the committee's de- 

It was recommended that a 
written reprimand be sent to 
a student after his first minor 
offense. The reprimand should 
be sent by the Dean of Men 
and contain the charge of and 
a warning that another offense 
will put the student before the 
Disciplinary Committee. 

The Disciplinary Committee 
.will be able to assign a study 
hall for some offenses. It would 
be conducted for two hours 

every night in one of the libr- 
ary seminar rooms. The time 
spent in study hall will be at 
the discretion of the Discip- 
linary Committee. 

The student assigned a work 
detail must sign a document 
stating his willingness to work 
without pay for the assigned 
time, and to assume full re- 
sponsibility of his own health 
and safety while working. 

The student can be assigned 
any major task that can be 
completed by one person. Such 
tasks might Include: keeping the 
campus free from litter, wash- 
ing windows in the administr- 
ation building, caring for the 
ball diamond, etc. 

In a case where dorming is 
recommended, the student will 
be required to be in his room 

at a Committee appointed time. 
He may not leave his room ex- 
cept for shower or toilet needs. 
He may not have visitors or 
receive phone calls except In 
cases of emergency. 

Dorming will be enforced by 
the Men's Discipline Enforce- 
ment Council. The council will 
also enforce any self -suggested 
punishment, or omerdiscipline 
action suggested by the Discip- 
linary Committee. 

Social probation, suspension, 
and expulsion will remain under 
the same current regulations 
of the disciplinary policy 

After receiving the report,

Committee "imp ressed" 

Self Study Report is confirmed 

The two years of MlUlgan's 
intensive self-study program 
culminated recently with the 
arrival ol the buuthein Asso- 
ciation't, Sell-Study Evaluating 

The committee arrived on 
Sunday, April 12, and began a 
careful study and evaluation of 
Milligan College anu Us 190- 
p*ge Self-Stuay Kepoi t. 

Members of the committee 
had received copies of the re- 
port In March, 1970, In order 
to study it before they arrived 
on campus. 

Chairman of the committee. 
Dean Edwara Lautenschlager, 
scheoulea the customary oral 
report to the college for Wed- 
nesday morning since the com- 
mittee had finished their evalu- 
ation Tuesday evening. 

Some of the conclusions they 
reachea are as follows; 

The purpose of the college 
was barely mentioned except 
to say It must be kept up to 
date with the practice of the col- 

Organization andadmlnlstra- 
oi tne college weie approved 
except for minor suggestions. 

The education program,!! was 
agreed, is harmonious with the 
college's purpose. "A great 
success" was the consensus on 
the humanities program. 

Deficiencies in the education 
program were: 1) the need for 



608 W.Wolait St. 
Johnson City 

doctorates In math an English, 
2) the need for new science 
facilities, 3) a posslbL reval- 
uation of classroom -equire- 
ifiCnti, because of the high grade 
distribution and the heavy 
schedules of some students, 
and 4) a proliferation l - 
courses was observed. 

Even though the college could 
always use more money, it 
w»s regarded as in good fin- 
ancial condition. 

Seemingly, the fees at Mil- 
ligan are somewhat less than 
those of comparable schools. 

Other than the fact that many 
professors are teaching out- 
side of their major area, the 
committee found the faculty ac- 
ceptable to Southern Associa- 
tion standards. 

Salaries were less favorably 
received. They were called 
"barely competitive," and the 
committee urged expediting 
their Increase. 

"Maximum" was the com- 
ment about teaching loaas. 

In the area of atuoent per- 
sonnel the college was com- 
menaed. The members, how- 
ever, "stressed the need to be 
prepared for the consequences 
of changing attitudes and 

The library was seriously 

The physclal education facil- 
ities were found adequate, but 
in need of development. 

Dr. Wetzel, chairman of the 
Self-Study Steering Committee, 
was verypleasedwith the South- 
ern Association committee and 
their findings. He was "very 
much lmpressedwlth the quality 
of people the Association sent." 

Especially gratifying was the 
fact that the intent to be "con- 
sultants rather than crltic3was 
stressed, and they lived up to 
that intent." 

Dr. Wetzel also observed that 
the committee "really did not 
uncover any problems that 
hadn't already been discussed 
in the Self-Study Report, Really 
they told us what we already 
knew. They just confirmed our 

Further, Dr. Wetzel added 
that because the committee 
members had an objectivity to- 
ward to the college, they also 
pointed out some good things 
about the college that we some- 
times overlook. They were 
"really impressed with the stu- 

BUSY MAN -- Dr. Jess Johnson, president of Milligan Col- 
lege, is involved in many off-campus activities which supple- 
ment his administrative duties. 

Office of P 
Dr. Johnso 

Dr. Jess Johnson has found 
that being President of Mil- 
ligan College requires, along 
with the regular administra- 
tive duties of his office, num- 
erous off-campus activities. 

Recently President Johnson 
was in Louisville, Kentucky, 
attending business meetings to 
discuss Investments for the col- 
lege. He also spoke at two 
churches in Louisville. 

Many times, trips give him 
the opportunity to tell pro- 
spective students about Mil- 
ligan. In some churches he 
prepares a sermon In which 
he can tell the congregation 
a little about MlUlgan. 

In other places, he meets 
with the board members and 
parents of prospective stu- 
dents to discuss various as- 
pects of the college. 

Sometimes he meets with tne 
area ministers at a breakfast

Dr. Johnson is continually 
representing Milligan College 
to various organizations. He 
expressM his work tothe board 
of the allege by saying, 'To 
date I have presented Milligan 
College to approximately 125 
or 130 churches. 

"My appeal, following the 
report on the college, has been 
threefold. 1. 1 have asked for 
the continual prayers of the 
church. 2. I have asked that 
they send us the best young 
people that we might educate 
a total ministry for the church. 
3. I have asked them to put 
us in their budgets for re- 
gular monthly giving for op- 
erational needs. 

"I have explained the Board 
of Advisors memberships and 
function and have urged that 
they put us in their budgets 
for at least one thousand dol- 
lars annually so that they might 
select a representatlveto serve 
on this board. I have discov- 
ered that most of these churches 
really know little about us. 
"It is my opinion that we 
shall have to continue culti- 
vation before we shall receive 
significant funds. 

''On the other hand, we shall 
continue to see Immediate re- 
sults through student enroll- 
ment and, I hope, through an 
endowment of prayer."

Get Together 

The most significant opportunity provided on "CancernedTuesday" 
was the chance for students, faculty, and administrators to labor 
and recreate together without the confines of everyday classrooms 
as a hindrance. Those students and faculty an administrators who 
participated were fortunate; those who did not participate (most 
noticable was the absence of a large number of the faculty) hold 
doubtful membership in the Milllgan "family". 

perhaps if the picnic lunch had been served outside the cafeteria 
ine students and their instructors might have mingled. But even on 
"Concerned Tuesday" the faculty and administrative di n i n g table 
was the place where the faculty and administrators chose to have 
lunch. Once there was a day in the history of educaiion when the 
teacher sat on one end of a log and the pupil sat on me other. Has 
the intimacy of such a "total educ a t ional experience" died at 
Milllgan, even on "Concerned Tuesday"? 

Concerned Tuesday ... 

Concerned Todav ? 

Council Apathy 

If the Student Council constitution were enforced, only five mem- 
bers would have retired last night when the newly elected Stu- 
dent Council assumed the leadership for 1970-1971. These in- 
dividuals are: John Banks, David Patrick, Wendy Hanselman, 
Jan Mclntyre, and Jim Mounts. All other student government 
leaders should have been removed from the membership roll 
because of failures to attend the Student Council meetings re- 

Although we often hear concerned discussions about student 
apathy, there is no better place to look for it than in our stu- 
dent government. When Student Council members fail to attend 
their own meetings, they are saying to the student body quite 
plainly, "We don't care how Milligan College functions." And 
if the Student Council is apathetic, why should we be so con- 
cerned about the student body as a whole? 

Apathy among the student body will only disappear when it 
can no longer be seen in our student govemmeuL We recom- 
mend a firm enforcement of the attendance clause in the Stu- 
dent Council constitution. Over a period of time through the pro- 
cess of dismissal and re-election, the whole-heartedly concerned 
students must be the ones in the capacity of leadership. 




Where is your pride? 

There seems to be a cur- 
ious phenomenon on the Mil- 
llgan College campus that 1 
feel should becloselyexamined. 

One can see, at any parti- 
cular time, a very noisy group 
of students who are quite vocif- 
erous In their objection to the 
school they attend. The school 
can do nothing right as far as 
this group Is concerned. The 
school "has it in" for them. 
Its rules are made just to stop 
them. They don't believe in 
Milllgan's alms, nor do they 
believe that Milllgan has alms. 

But their most obvious trait, 
and the easiest way these people 
can be noticed is that they de- 
spise Milllgan so much that any 
damage they do or any in- 
convenience they can cause does 
not bother them. 

Walk into the Student Union 
Building, sit down, and watch. 
The ' 'group' ' comes In and 
buys food, sirs at a table en 
mass and when they leave, the 
Red Cross wouldn't touch the 
site. Now the S.U.B. has re- 
ceptlcles for waste paper but 
It seems that some people ex- 

pect afewpeoplewhoworkthere 
to keep it all cl e aned up. These 
people who lack pride don't 
seem to care what kind of mess 
they leave for the next patron. 

I am well aware that this 
group Is not the only culprit 
In littering the S.U.B. but this 
Is just a part, a very apparent 
part, of the lack of pride In 
their school. They do not care 
what damage they do. Destroyed 
rooms, wrecked showers, 
broken windows, smashed 
walls, and litter everywhere 
are their trademarks. 

Fortunately, I believe that 
this group is a distinct min- 
ority. The problem is t h at no 
one has called their hand so 
far. They continue to subject 
the rest of the people who live 
here to their brand of society. 

The people who complain the 
most about Milligan are the 
same ones who will do nothing 
to help the school. It would 
appear that by their own act- 
ions (or lack of them) they 
completely invalidate their 
criticism. They are the people 
who cheat the most, thus steal- 
ing grades from the honest 

student. They go out of their 
way to be repulsive. And every- 
one else suffers. 

There Is a way of combating 
this malicious behavior. It lies 
with the rest of the Milligan 
Community. If these Inconsid- 
erate people were told to 
their face just ho-* much their 
actions sicken the people who 
have to put up with it, they 
might get the picture. Instead 
of passing it off, the decent 
people should take personal of- 
fense at the obvious asocial 

The people who live on this 
campus are responsible for this 
campus. A good many of us 
love this place. It has a pur- 
pose In which we believe. The 
only way we can help our 
school is to do all in our 
power to releave her problems. 
Milligan is preparing us for 
service to our fellow man. The 
least we can do Is to respond 
with pride and respect for her. 

Do you respect your school 
and your fellow members of this 
academic community? Where is 
your pride? Show it. 

Christ and Culture 

Course relates classes to belief 

Some ten years ago certain 
members of the Milllgan fac- 
ulty and administration began 
considering the possibility of 
a senior level religion course 
that would both suppllment the 
freshman Bible course and 
synthesize the knowledge gain- 
ed from four years of study. 
Thus came into being the Christ 
and Culture course. 

At that time there was some 
concern that one Bible course 
was Inadequate, but It was de- 
cided against simply adding 
another Bible course at the 
senior level. Rather, it was 
believed more consistent with 
Milllgan's educational philoso- 
phy to provide a course that 
would relate four years of 
course-work to Christian be- 

The Christ and Culture 
course is a one semester re- 
quirement course for seniors. 
The senior class of 1968-69 
became the first class to take 
Christ and Culture, which was 
then taught by Dr. Roger Size- 

There were some problems 

because some of the seniors 
had developed schedule con- 
flicts. These persons were 
usually allowed by the Acade- 
mic Committee to by-pass the 
course and still receive their 
degrees. This allowance was 
made because the Academic 
Committee believed that these 
students had not been totally 
responsible for their schedule 

This year, however, there 
are only two or three seniors 
exempted from the course. 

During the past two years 
there has been some student 
complaint about requiring a 
senior religion course, but Dr. 
Richard Phillips, professor of 
the course, feels that at least 
some complaint is inevitable 

any rime the concepts of "re- 
ligion" and "requirement" are 

Dr. Phillips, however, feels 
that no apology need be made 
for the course, which he be- 
lieves has great value. Fur- 
thermore, Dr. Phillips feels 
thai the synthetic platform of 
the Humanities program will 
offer future seniors a better 
orientation into the Christ and ■ 
Culture course. 

For the future, possibly yet 
this semester. Dr. Phillips is 
considering adding a few class 
sessions on the history and 
si gnif i ca nce of the Restoration 
Movement. The main emphasis 
of the course will remain on the 
vital relationship between 
Christ and culture.

Letters to the Editor 

"Open Range" allows freedom of expression 

I Recently I received a letter 
from an alumni of Milligan 
■ College who. In reading an Issue 
of the Stampede, came to the 
conclusion that these must be 
, "Bour days" at Milligan. She 
asked for my assessment of the 
situation and I would like to 
take this opportunity to share 
my assessment with the read- 
ers of the Stampede. Enclosed 
Is a copy of my letter to her. 
Cordially yours, 
C. Robert Wetzel 
Dear Alumna, 

I can certainly under- 
stand your concern after read- 
ing the issue that dealt with 
the recent suspension of stu- 
dents. As you are well aware, 
there are many facets to every 
question. Without going to the 
specific details, let me suggest 
that the Issue of the Stampede 
which you evidently read re- 
flects the opinions of some 
students but does not reflect 
any significant change In 
campus life. For example, we 
have recently hosted the eval- 
uating committee from the 
Southern Association. This was 
a nine-member committee 
whose responsibility it was to 
evaluate the campus In every 
detail as a pan of our two- 
year program of self-study. 
One of the positive reports of 
the committee was that they 
were Impressed with the fact 
that students and facultyunder- 
stood the purpose of the col- 
lege and supported It. They de- 
scribed Milligan students as 
Intensely loyal and the com- 
munity as harmonious. Let me 
assure you that the committee 
found other problems and they 
had no hesitancy telling us about 
them since this was their Job. 
Thus, 1 can say with confid- 
ence that had they found signi- 
ficant morale problems I am 
sure that they would have had 
no hesitancy In calling this fact 
to our attention. 

In my opinion there has been 
a healthy turn of events in both 
the editorial leadership of the 
Stampede as well as the leader- 
ship of the student body as a 
whole. The Intense concern for 
bringing about the "best of all 
possible worlds" here at Mil- 
ligan Is admirable and desir- 
able. On the other hand, it 
also means that the various 
problems that develop within 
the college community get a 
public airing. The Publications 
Committee feels that the Stam- 
pede editorial page should be 
a forum for discussing Mil- 
ligan community problems. 
Hence, In attempting to maxi- 
mize freedom of expression, 
even when reactionary, the col- 
lege runs the risk of Its con- 
stituency Judging the status of 
campus affairs only by the re- 
marks of those who choose to 
express themselves in print. 
Thus, 1 do not believe that 
these are "sour days" at Mil- 
ligan. We have problems as we 
have always had problems. I 
cannot see that they are any 
more serious than in years 
past. In many respects we have 

made considerable progress, 
but progress comes with some 
difficulty and difficulties tend 
to make us myopic. You said 
in your letter, "To me Mil- 
ligan is a word of reverence. 
It's more than a school its an 
idea." I have no doubt that 
when we as faculty and stu- 
dents are able to raise our 
heads above the contingencies 
of the immediate situation, we 

too can say this with you. 

Thank you for talcing the time 
to write. Your concern for the 
future of Milligan College is 
heartening to me personally. 
I trust that the love of Christ 
will continue to make itself 
felt in the lives of the Mil- 
ligan community whether that 
community be students, admin- 
istration, faculty, alumni, or 
simply concerned friends. 

Press-Chronicle ignores M illigan 

Quite a few students and fac- 
ulty have asked me what Is 
wrong with our public relations 
in Johnson City and why we 
don't advertise anything in the 
N1CLE such as the artexhlbits, 
the organ recital last week, 
and the George Shirley con-

ing of April 16, 1970,the even-

ley Is to perform at convoca- 

I have been sitting In the 
library since 6;30 working on 
a term paper that is due the 
22nd of this month. 

At approximately 7:45 all 
Milligan students were asked 
to leave the library in order 
that they might attend the con- 
vocation service. At 8 o'clock 
sumlng that all Milligan stu- 
dents had left, Mr. Newton pro- 
ceeded to perform his duty 
of locking up the library so that 
Milligan students might not be 
able to enter,. 

I would like to express my 
opinion of how unethical the 
act of locking up the library 
was. First of all, by locking 
the library, no one, not even 
Emmanuel students could get 
in. And, although It seems high- 
ly Improbable, East Tennessee 
State students would not be able 
to enter either. 

Second, If any of the Em- 
manuel students who were In 
the library when it was first 
locked up decided to leave and 
come back later, they would not 
be able to get back in without 
assistance from within. 

Third , the library is never 
locked during the regular con- 
vocation hour, so why should 
It be now? 

I was told by Mr. Newton 
that I was supposed to be at- 
tending convocation, to which 
I replied that I was not going 
to attend. No more was said 
to me and 1 was allowed to 
remain In the library. (It has 
been rumored that my family 
has some sort of Influence 
around this school, but as of 
yet I have not pinpointed It.) 

Mr. Newton was only doing 
his Job as he was tcld to do

son why they do not print our 
articles is not known to me.

certainly more newsworthy and 
of local Interest than some of 
the articles that have received 
extensive coverage by them. , 

Whatever the reason is, we 
have just about decided that It 
is not worth our effort to bother 
sending them any more copy 
since it is not printed. If you 
will try to check for coming 
events in the STAMPEDE and 
will appreciate it. 

It is a sad commentary when 
a paper that has no competition 
In an area such as JohnsonClty 
and which Is responsible for 
much of the opinion-making and 
news-slanting that the citizens 
are exposed to, does not at- 
tempt to cover events equally 
around the area.

Palo Alto, Calif. - (l.P.)- 
There Is a world-wide "egali- 
tarian rage" against distinction 
and achievement, an d it is 
contributing "heavily to the 
wave of antl-lntellectuallsm 
that is threatening the U.S.," 
Stanford University Provost Ri- 
chard W. Lyman warned here 
recently at the annual Phi Beta 
Kappa dinner. 

"The attack on Intellectual 
distinction is about as severe 
from the Left as from the 
Right," Lyman said .and It is 
linked with the theme that "ob- 
jective thought is an impos- 

This, he said, "expresses a 
defeatism about the human po- 
tential so severe as to stagger 
the Imagination. Seldom has 
glorification of instinct enjoy- 
ed a greater popularity than 
today. Linked as It is on the 
Left with a sweeping and un- 
critical egalltarlanism , the new 
idolatry of feeling over thinking 
is a potent and ultimately de- 
structive force in the academic 

The link-up of egalltarlanism 
and anti-intellectuallsm is no- 
thing new, Lyman said. Noting 
that intellectual enterprise 
thrives on aspiration toward 
excellence, he ... warned that 
"it cannot thrive In an atmos- 
phere of mingled contempt for 
high quality and distrust of the 
rational as opposed to the non- 

"It is therefore threatened to 
an unusual degree by the revolt 
against reason which todayjolns

hands with a revolt against both 
authority and hierarchy In any 
and all forms, legitimate and 
illegitimate alike." 

"From the Know-Nolblngs to 
Joseph McCarthy, the America 
of the backwoods and the back- 
streets alike has sadly often 
found the notion of Intellectual 
distinction one of the most in- 
furiating forms of hierarchy. 
"We have seen In George 
Wallace's campaign that the 
virus has not died out," Lyman 
continued, "though people's 
susceptibility to It did not turn 
out to be quite as great as many 
had feared during the campaign 
— perhaps because he did not 
succeed In monopolizing the 
a nti- Intellectual vole— a fact 
that has become clearer since 
the memorable phrase 'effete 
snobs' entered the literature of 
our times." 

The impetus to egalltarlan- 
ism today, he said, stems from 
its close link to opposition to 
imposed authority. "One re- 
sists authority out of a desire 
to have one's own way; but one 
Justifies one's right to have 
one's way by appealing to the 
equality of all human beings." 
There is much criticism on 
campuses, be noted, of grading 
systems, degrees and creden- 
tials, because say the critics, 
all of this is "dehumanizing." 
Comparative evaluation goes on 
throughout life, Lyman said, but 
there nevertheless is a "rising 
tide of resentment at the bur-

Rohrbaugh outlines council activities for next year 

In an Interview with a Stam- 
pede reporter, president -elect 
of Student Council, John Rohr- 
baugh, discussed preactlvltles 
and planned programs oi the 
Student Council. 

In keeping with his platlorm 
of organization rather than re- 
form, John has formed a cab- 
inet of students whose respon- 
slbllltes would be similar to 
those of a dean or director of 
student affairs. 

According to Mr. Rohrbaugh, 
"Although President Johnson 
has Indicated a director of stu- 
dent affairs Is not needed on 
our campus at the present time, 
I firmly believe there are cer- 
tain necessary responsibilities 

that should be fulfilled by that 
office." This cabinet would be 
a stopgap measure on the part 
of the concerned students to 
make up for the lack of such 
an office. 

At present, the cabinet con- 
sists of five secretaries, two of 
which remain to be appointed. 
The appointed secretaries are 
as follows: Secretary of Re- 
ligious Affairs, Mr.MarkCam- 
eron; Secretary of Socal Af- 
fairs, Mr. Steve Knowlcs: Se- 
cretary of Maintenance, Mr. 
Robert Wells. 

A secretary i n charge of 
school spirit and a secretary 
in charge of constitutional re- 
forms remain to be appointed. 

Vice-president, Jim Mounts, 
is toworkclosely with all dorm- 
itory councils as the president- 
elect feels that the dorm Is the 
best place to get student opinion. 

President John Rohrbaugh 
and Vice President Jim Mounts 
are planning to go personally to 
aU dorms to hold meetings with 
students In order to set up a 
rapport between the dorms and 
the Student Council. 

Executive meetings three or 
four nights belore regularly 
scheduled council meetings 
have already begun in order 
that suggestions and complaints 
may be organized and formal- 
ized before council meetings 
on Thursday nights. 

Melvln Morton, secretary of 
Student Council, will be co-ord- 
inating and publicizing activi- 
ties on campus so that there 
will be no conflict in activities 
and so that all students will be 
informed of such activities. The 
council will act as a clearing 
office for all activities. 

President - elect Rohrbaugh 
said there is a period of lag at 
the end of the year when the 
new council officers cannot or- 
ganize enough to promote any 
major changes, although some 
activities may be planned. 

At the present, plans are 
being made for freshman or- 
ientation, summer picnics, a 
student handbook (the first in 
three years), and a calendar 
of events for major activities. 

The council also hopes to 
take over the publication of the 
yellow sheet of weekly events 
and the posting of a giant cal- 
endar oi events in the S.U.B,, 
Administration Building, and 
the Student Council room. 

President - elect Rohrbaugh 
feels the Student Council should 
be a leader on campus in or- 
ganizing and acting on student 
opinion. He said, "Our efforts 
starting now, even at the end 
of this year, must show every 
student on campus, whether it's 
a man living in Hardin Hall or 

a woman living in Sutton Hall, 
that Student Council Is Inter- 
ested in doing the things that 
the students want done." 

When asked about campus 
apathy, he replied, "The re- 
sponsibility of a Student Coun- 
cil is to prove to the students 
that Student Council Is more 
than Just a group of students 
meeting every Thursday night. 
If tbe Student Council gets in- 
volved In campus life, then oth- 
er students may become Inter- 
ested also, but not until the 
council does first." 

The power of the Student 
Council does not extend to mak- 
ing changes in policy, however. 
The council may spend money 
that is delegated to It and make 
suggestions on policy or policy 
changes. "Whatever authority 
the council possesses is given to 
it only by administration re- 
spect for the council itself. 
Very little authority has thus 
far been delegated," concluded 
Mr. Rohrbaugh. 

STAMPEDE congratulates engaged 

THE SPOILS OF OFFICE -- The rewards tor holding Student 
Council office are often few and far between. But when every- 
thing else fails, one can always rob the Student Council coke 
machine. They newly elected executive committee are: (1-r) — 
President - John Rohrbaugh, Vice President - Jim Mounts, - 
Treasurer - Robert Trultt, and Secretary - Melvln Morton. 

The spring of the year finds 
many MUIigan couples thinking 
in terms of marriage. 

The STAMPEDE honors all 
those couples who have publicly 

Mrs. Bowers' classes 

Sophomores clear hill for fans 

At eight o'clock In the morn- 
ing on April 16, Mrs. Bowers' 
sophomore activities classes 
began a clean-up project on the 
Mil above the baseball field. 

Equipped with rakes, axes, 
and clippers, students began 

pulling out briars, sweeping 
off steps, and picking up Utter. 
They carried the debris away 
on blankets, 

Mr. William Brown, working 
just as an interested parry, 
brought his power saw to help 



with the bigger tasks. 

Two large stacks of briars 
and branches were accumulated 
and were hauled away In four 
maintenance trucks. Enough ve- 
getation was left, however, to 
prevent erosion of the hill. 

This project was Inspired 
when, at the first few Milligan 
baseball games, Mrs. Bowers 
noticed that spectators had 
very little room to sit and 
watch the games. 

Mrs. Bowers hopes to moti- 
vate further effort to clear the 
entire bank to facilitate view- 
ing of track meets, as well.

McMinnville, Ore. - (I.P.)-- 
Failing grades need no longer 
appear on a student's transcript 
at Llnfleld College. The faculty 
has passed a measure to make a 
student's transcript a record of 
satisfactory completion ol re- 

The Innovation is one which 
has also been adopted recently 
at Brown University. The phil- 
osophy behind this move Is that 
a record of failure often pre- 
cludes another chance in edu-

In graduate school or employ- 

Llnfleld will require a 2.0 
average for graduation and that 
a student be suspended for fail-

courses by the end of the first 
year, 10 courses by the end of 
the second year, 15 courses by 
the end of the third year, and 
20 courses by the end of the

Communications, trans- 
portation and technology have 
formed the United States into 
one nation so that college stu- 
dents think similarly and have 
like problems in both Ten- 
nessee and California. They 
said It does Utile good to speak 
of opportunities for Christ- 
ian activity of collegians on the 
West Coast, when East 
Tennessee's students can do 
many ol the same things. 

Mr. Terry and Mr. WUson 
were on campus Tuesday 
through Friday (May 12-15) to 
conduct the annual Christian 
Emphasis Week, Mr. Terry

a program geared to college 
students in the local congrega- 
tions and to students on a num- 
ber of campuses in trie Los

minister of First Christian 
Church In LaHabra, California, 
and is a member of Project 
Challenge's board of directors. 
These two men said they 
found it necessary upon first 
moving to Southern California 
from the Midwest, to rethink 
their position in terms of what 
Christianity is and what they 
had obtained from their cul- 
ture. Until then they could 
not effectively reach the "jet 
set" of a somewhat different 

This reanalysis, they said, 
enabled them to trim off use- 
less fat of tradition and cul- 
ture, and thus to present the 
lean meat of the Gospel as it 
applied to the immediate cul- 
ture. They believe that the 
carefully- studied and analyzed 
conclusions at which they have 
ultimately arrived are pure 
forms of Christianity — and 
this is why they have received 
favorable response from 
college students. "Kids turned 
off to the Institutional church 
are turned on to Jesus," re- 
marked Mr. Terry. 

Far from being antl-lnstitu- 
tionalistic, both menhave Bible

grounds, and they encourage the 

young adults whom they meet 
to remain In their Institutional

In conjunction with Mr.

Student Council to print 
handbook, weekly calendar 

Student Council Is making 
plans to publish a student 
handbook which will be dis- 
tributed to all MUllgan stu- 
dents In the fall of 1970. 

Each council member has 
been assigned a section of the 
handbook to complete before 
the end of the semester. After 
final exams are over the ex- 
ecutive commitiee along with 
professor Tracey Miller, di- 
rector of the Off ice of Informa- 
tion, will lay out the final draft. 

The executive committee of 
the council, president John Ro- 
hrbaugh, vice President Jim 
Mounts, Secretary Melvin Mor- 

ton, and Treasurer Bob Trultt, 
were guests on the Cathy He- 
win Show on WJCW FM Wed- 
nesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. 

The council met Monday night 
to select next year's advisors. 
Elected were Mr. Guy Mauldln 
and Coach Duard Walker. 

Friday, May 15, the council 
held a formal banquet for all 
council members and invited 

The council now has a for- 
mal seating arrangement for 
their meetings. The seating is 
determined by class, dorm 
presidents, and commuter re- 

The amending of the amend- 
ment clause In the Student 
Council constitution is also In 
process. This amending would 
facilitate the future amendment 
of the constitution. 

Future plans Include sending 
Connie Brltton to a cheerlead-

versity, In Terre Haute, Indi- 
ana. After attending this camp, 
Connie will be in charge of the

is-working with a committee to 
enforce the new dress code In 
the cafeteria and to develop a

Steve Knowles is presenting 
a recommendation of council 
for a change in traffic rules. 
This change would allow stu- 
dents to park near the dormi- 
tories instead of In the canyon. 

Plans have also begun for the 
summer picnics which provide 
a chance for MUligan students 
in various areas of the nation 
to meet together during the

will not only Include theweek's 
events but also the abbreviated 
minutes of council meetings, 
the results of Student Council

Men in Webb Hall this year 
have become aware of the sub-

derived from the $1.00 dormi-

In the past, difficulties have 
been encountered In collecting 
the dues because the men could 
see no reason for paying them. 

President Jim Mounts stated 
that one of his goals this year 
was to improve Webb Hall life 
by reinvesting the dues in the 
dormitory. He and the dorm 
council, with the cooperation 
of the other residents, have 
made many advancements.

Some Difference 

We oppose the MUllgan College double standard between men's 
and women's rules. We do not oppose the differences between men 
women; we do not oppose the differences between masculinity and 

But when an institution has codifleda social system which liberates 
the male and subjugates the female, then changes must be made. 
We do not advocate either the subjugation of the men or the liberation 
of the women to achieve a balance; compromises should be made. 

Why is there no changing of rooms during a semester without 
special permission from the Dean of Women when the men can 
move anytime they choose? Why are there weekly room inspections 
In the women's dormitories when three of thefour men's dorms have 
none? Why are no television sets permitted in women's rooms 
when men may have their own? Why are no overnight guests per- 
mitted in the women's dormitories on week-nights with exceptions 
coming from the Dean of Women when the men may have guests 
at any time? Why must women sign in and sign out when entering 
and leaving the dormitory when the men have no such regulation 
(unless only women have emergencies and need to be contacted 
off-campus)? Why are Social Privilege Sheets so limited in parental 
permission that many off-campus requests require the Dean of- 
Women's permission? Why must women wear dresses to basketball 
games when men may wear whatever they choose? Why can women 
be campused and men cannot? Why can men visit in the lobby 
of women's dormitories when women cannot visit in the lobby of 
men's dormitories. 

No changes in any of these rules would subtract from the inherent 
femininity of any one MUllgan woman. What Is the reason for our 
double standard? 

Dissent to Dissent 

Even after the Cambodian Invasion and the killings at Kent 
State University. President Ntocon's "silent majority" appears to 
be holding it's own unified front of non-vocal assent. According 
to the most recent Gallup poll, Americans find Mr. Nbton's ad- 
ministration "satisfactory" by better than a 2 to 1 margin, 50% 
favor the Cambodian operation and only 39% oppose it, a mere 
U% of the general public hold the National Guard responsible for 
the deaths of the Kent State students, and the plurality {though 
not the majority) approve of Vice President Agnew's rhetoric about 

Against such popular convictions spoke former Defense Secretary 
Clark Clifford. "1 cannot remain silent in the face of ( President 
Nixon's) reckless decision to send troops to Cambodia. It is my 
opinion that (he) is taking our nation down a road that Is leading 
us more deeply Into Vietnam rather than taking us out." 

Bui perhaps one of the most emotion-packed retorts to recent 
brutal events so condoned by vast numbers of our fellow Americans 
appeared In the May 11th edition of the New York Times. On the 
front page eleven Kent State students, described as moderate and 
uninvolved in the political beliefs before the shootings, opened 
their minds to the nation. 

A veteran of Vietnam on the panel said, "You want to jump up 
and scream, 'Somebody do something!' But ffie somebody we scream 
to is Mr. and Mrs. Front Porch America, who haven't done any- 
thing for the last how many years." Another of the men went 
home to Canton, Ohio, where the people were saying, "We ought 
to machine-gun them all... .They deserved it. It's about time." 
He did conslderalbe research and that, he reports, is the general 
sentiment In the area. He believes Splro Agnew is the most popular 
man In the country today. 

"Everybody dldn'tgotocollege,"thlsstudent commented. "Every- 
body hasn't read the books we've read. They earn their $8,00G 
a year and have their own little home, their car and their job and 
they don't really care about anything else." 

What Is developing in this coui.try seems to be a divisive chasm 
alienating the academic community from the urban-rural community 
In an increasingly violent manner. When ei§ht side resorts to vio- 
lence, whether it be the •'intellectual effete" who throw rocks or 
"Mr. and Mrs. Front Porch America" who endorse National Guard 
killing, then that is the time that the United States decays. Vio- 
lence is no way to determine the direction a nation travels. Mean- 
ingful dissent and dissent to dissent must be rational and objective, 
and both must be permitted to occur. 

Buffs biology professor 
presents pollution facts 

Since pollution Is fast be- 
coming a major problem in the 
MUllgan community as It is 
throughout the country, Dr. Gee, 
a professor of biology at MU- 
llgan, has done some research 
on the problem. 

He has divided his study into 
four areas --air, water, soil, 
and human. 

The major factors in polluting 
the air are factories, Inter- 
nal combustion engines, and 
common home-owner burners. 
These sources add sulfur dio- 
xide and carbon monoxide to 
the atmosphere. 

The addition of these sub- 
stances to the air affects the 
availability of oxygen which is 
necessary to sustain plant and 
animal life. 

This addition could also 
change atmospheric conditions. 
It has been predicted and do- 
cumented that the lower at- 

mosphere could eventually be 
wanned up» causing several 
problems. One such problem 
would be the melting of the 
polar Ice caps, 


A common misconception of 
the day is that water Is be- 
coming scarce. Actually there 
Is plenty of water but clean 
water is becoming less avail- 
able. Chemical runoff and 
chemical addition are making 
the available water unsafe for 
human use. 

The three main sources of 
water pollution are industrial, 
home waste, and natural pol- 
lutants. In the MUllgan area 
these sources are the Bem- 
berg and Beaunlt plants and 
home sewage. 

Natural pollutants Include 
tree sap and certain kinds of 
algae which grow 1q the streams 
and lakes. These factors alter 
the chemical condition of the 

Milligan students go 
to Washington D.C. 


Several weeks ago Dr. Moor- 
house and four of his speech 
students planned a field trip 
to Washington D.C. Unknown to 
us then was that our trip to 
the nation's capital would not 
allow us to visU the 
government's function but also 
provide a chance to witness 
an event that many of us had 
never seen before and may 
never see again. 

We made our way to the 
Senate buUdlng where we met 
our appointment with Senator 
Baker. Upon entering his 
olflce, the receptionist inquired 
as to our business with the Sen- 
ator. We answered that we 
were from MUligan College and 
should be expected for a two 
o'clock appointment. Ap- 
parently she misunderstood, 
> because she thought we said 
"mUitant." After checking 
her date book she saw that we 
Jd have an appointment, andwe 
were allowed to see the Sena- 

Inside his office, Baker ques- 
tioned us to our reason for being 
in Washington and his office. 
We assured him that we had 
brought no placards, nor grie- 
vances, but a sincere desire to 
ask htm some questions about 
governmental functions. He 
was relieved, and we left the 
airing of dissention to others 
of our age who were in the same 
office building. 

We witnessed an exciting de- 
bate in the House. We also 
finished our tourism of the cap- 
ital the next day. Included in 
that Friday's agenda, was a 
visit Inside the Pentagon. We 
were met at the door by a 
guard who Immediately recogn- 
ized us as "shady" college 
people, Indignant, he asked 
us of our business. We re- 
sponded with a smile and as- 
sured him thai we were In 
Washington to see the federal 
government in action and no- 
thing else. He said for us to 
check our cameras and left. 

That Friday night, we ex- 
perienced one of those events. 
The night of the President's 
press conference. In casual, but 
conservative attire, we stroUed 
In front of the White House. 
The protesters noticed that we 
were not like them, but paid 
us no mind, while they quietly 
assembled and listened to the 
President. One of the most 
noted contrasts to the MUllgan 
way of life, Is that, we gues- 
sed, only about 33% of the fe- 
male protesters wore bras. 
This was so obvious that we 
did not need to affix our at- 
tention to this gross display 
of lnstabUity, We also noted 
that few boys wore bras. 

Later, after watching novlo- 
lence, only a somber candle- 
light vigU for those dead Kent 
State students.we, lead by the 
persistent action-seeker, WU1- 
lam Moorhouse, gathered 
among the radicals in a 
definitely non-MUUgan atmos- 
phere. The Jefferson Airplane 
and other groups had assembled 
to provide free entertainment 
for the thousands who had 
sought refuge around the 
grounds, of the Washington 
monument. There was a fra- 
grant "air" about the scene 
and most obvious under-the- 
blanket action, both bl-sexual 
and homosexual. We returned 
to our Howard Johnson's ice 
cream place and in our 
chagrin and weary, prepared 
to return home to reality. 

In my estimation we MUligan 
people were in the place of 
limbo during the trip. We are 
coUege people, but not the brand 
that was stereotyped in the 
Congressional and mUltary 
setting. By the same token, 
we were distinctly different and 
recognized as such by those 
who were the example o£ the 
stereotype. We were on the out- 
side looking in, and we are glad 
to have been these observers 
and to have shared In a dU- 
ferent educational experience. 

water so that plants and animals 
cannot live In It. 

These problems can be over- 
come by other chemical add- 
ltlons but the water would not 
taste or smeU "clean" tohum- 
ans. Dr. Gee believes that, "hu- 
mans wUI have to learn to 
drink water that doesn't smell 
as well," as that to which they 
are accustomed at present, but 
that is Just as safe to drink. 

Pollution of the soU results 
from the use of insecticides 
and the disposal of solid waste 
material. DDT and several 
other Insecticides are cumula- 
tive and become toxic after a 
time. Also the disposal of gar- 
bage by burying It adds sev- 
eral materials to the soU that 
do not decompose. 

Nitrogen from animal wastes 
and erosion because of poor 
management of the land are also 
contributors to the pollution of 
the soU. 

At this time the U. S, 15 
capable of producing enough 
food to feed many more people 
than It has. But, If soU pol- 
lution Is not soon curbed or 
stopped, the day is approach- 
ing when this wUI no longer 
be possible. 


A fourth type of pollution 
is that of the human organism. 
This classification includes 
such pollutants as alcohol and 
cigarettes, all of which disor- 
ient and destroy the mind. 

According to Dr. Gee, "Man 
must learn to live better in 
his environment. He must face 
his responsibUities; he can't 
find things to hide behind." He 
feels a change must come In 
man's "attltudinal concepts." 

A few weeks ago MUligan had 
a Concerned Tuesday, which 
was a day set aside for stu- 
dent and faculty thinking and 
discussion on environmental 

Dr. Gee was chairman of the 
committee which organized 
Concerned Tuesday. One ob- 
ject of the day was to clean 
up the MUligan Collegecampus, 
and to promote the idea of a 
foUow-up program, maybe as 
a class project. 

pollution on MUllgan Campus 
was one of the problems dis- 
cussed on Concerned Tuesday. 
The most evident result of pol- 
lution Is Buffalo Creek. The 
problem stems mosUy from 
erosion and carelessness up- 
stream, but also from the 
road project now being under- 

Other examples of poUutlon 
at MUligan are erosion of the 
soU, the smoke In the air, 
litter, and drugs in and around 
the area. 

Dr. Gee feels that pollution 
results from, "a general irres- 
ponslbUlty of others' pro- 
perty." He did hasten to add, 
however, that he feels that MU- 
llgan students are careful and 
considerate In most cases. 

He further staled, "We can'i 
expect to live in a Utopian 
environment. We must give up 
some of the things we now 
have. But, we can expect some 
new and exciting changes to 

The STAMPEDE, Friday, May 22, 1970 - Page S 



A common theme to be heard 
on the MUligan College campus 
Is the comparison of our col- 
lege to other types. 

Usually, the person doing the 
comparison makes It seem that 
the other Institution has a great 
many advantages over Mllligan. 
There are those who believe 
we should be more like a Bible 
college. Still others think we 
should be more of a liberal 
arts college. 

I would respectfully submit 
that these comparisons are In- 
accurate for the simple reason 
that Milllgan Is a unique entity. 
We have maintained a position 
that automatically excludes us 
from the realm of either a 
liberal arts school or a Bible 

The people who founded this 
Institution held that since God 
Is the author of all knowledge, 
there is no validity In the idea 
that the education of a man's 
mind should be separate from 
that of his spiritual person, 
Man Is a whole being -- mind, 
body, and spirit — and as such 
should be trained in all three 

They also believed that the 
living God was applicable toall 
academic discipline since He 
Is the author of all truth. What 
Is science without Its author? 
What Is history or sociology 
or music without Its supreme 

They truly believed in the 
idea of the priesthood of all 
believers. We, therefore, are 
not departmentalized. There 
Is vital ministry In the pulpit 
and the school, the plant, the 
hospital, and the court. 

All who claim the privileges 
of Christianity have also ac- 
cepted its responsibilities no 
matter what occupations they 
take as their life's work. We 
Dresent the Bible as the re- 
levant word of God to all man- 

We teach Bible courses here, 
yet our degrees are valid and

dent upon whom It Is conferred

We teach the humanities, the 
arts, and the sciences but also 
instruct the Christian young 
person In the basic tenants of 
his faith and attempt to In- 
spire him to realize his full 
potential as a witness for 

I am well aware that there 
are students here who could 
care less about our uniqueness. 
They have not come here for 
purpose or relevance. They 
seek an easy degree and an 
inexpensive "education." 

Some fully expect and have 
managed to complete four years 
of "study" at Milllgan andhav- 
lng gotten by with the bare 
minimum of effort and produc- 
tion, left here not possessing 
the full benefit available. 
They do not give of themselves. 
They just take and care nothing 
for anyone else. Their lives 
center around themselves, and 
It Is this narrowness that will 
choke them off. 

Milllgan has often been ac- 
cused by these students of 
"cramming religion down their 
throats ' * 1 know that these 
people have not read or at least 
paid attention to the fact that 
Milllgan is a "church-related 
and cburch-supported school" 
and as such Is an extension 
of the ministry of those sup- 
porting congregations. 

Do they really expect us to 
turn our back on the central 
truth of God's Word that was 
the founding Idea of this school? 

Milllgan has been accused of 
being " too liberal." I feel 
that the people who make this 
assertion fall to realize that 
the way the gospel Is trans- 
mitted as a Uvingtruth is based 
solely in the ability of Its ad- 
herents to communicate. 

We run fill a person with 
knowleu^e about the Bible and 
set him loose, but what happens

1 truly feel that the com- 
parisons of Milllgan to other 
schools are rather awkward 
because we are one of a kind. 
We are a singular entity. Be- 
cause of our particular back- 
ground and the founding Ideal 
which is our origin, it Is very 
unfair to place us in comparison 
with liberal arts or Bible 

I also feel that those people 
who do not wish to be a part 
of that which MUUlgan repre- 
sents should think seriously 
about attending another school 
that Is more compatible with 
their educational aims. 

To those who desire well-

Milllgan stands ready to foster

it was stated that "MUligan has 
never given athletic scholar- 
ships before." Such scholar- 
ships were offered at onetime, 
but the expense of football and of 
the scholarships became such 
a serious financial burden that 
they were discontinued,

Reader Criticizes Cartoon 

In the April edition of your 
paper, the first thing that hit 
my eye was the cartoon about 
our President. I respect the 
freedom of the press and cer- 
tainly believe that our young 
people should express their 

However, I have always been 
under the impression that our 
President was a man deserv- 
ing honor and respect even 
though it is not humanly pos- 
sible for all the people, all the 
time to agree with him on every 
Issue that confronts our na- 
tional government. 

Anyway what I have In mind 
is since the Insulting cartoon 
has had its' chance to be quite 
widely read and viewed I 
would like to ask if a more 
respectful cartoon could be 
printed In the near future. I'm 
sure the one herein suggested 
will tend to give the STAMPEDE 
a more Christian flavor for 
its' many readers to read. 

Since I am not an artist, 
I will request that you will 
furnish the picture part of the 
cartoon that I am enclosing. 
I suppose It Is not your re- 

gular practice to print material 
from outsiders. A title like 
"Outsider Criticizes Stampede 
Cartoon" then you could use my 
suggestion and also some ex- 
erts this note to you. 

I noticed the article that 
rated the Stampede as a very 
good paper. If however, too 
many articles or pictures of 
tills new strange kind of 
thinking creeps slowly into our 
Christian college papers, it 
will make the enemies of our 
country very happy that they 
have successfully infiltrated 
our Christian schools. 
In Christian Love 
Mrs. Robert Pugh 
Ed. Note: We appreciate tfie 
concern of Mrs. Pugh for our 
student newspaper. The rea- 
son her cartoon could not be 
printed was for lack of space 
in our last issue. Opinions 
expressed in "Open Range" do 
not necessarily reflect tbe opin- 
ion of Milllgan' s administra- 
tion, faculty, or student body, 
but we prize the freedom per- 
mitted at Milllgan for any 
rational opinion ot be openly 
expressed and rebutted.

Buff baseball squad ends 
season with 17-14 record 

Milligan completed a good 
baseball season by posting a 
17-14 record. 

Although the Buffs did not 
reach eighth the Volunteer 
State Athletic Conference or the 
National Association of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics tourna- 
ments, they played some out- 
standing baseball during the 
1970 campaign. 

Lincoln Memorial Univer- 
sity was the villain as far as 
the Buffs were concerned. They 
defeated Milligan twice during 
the final week of the season 
(o beat out the Buffs for one 
of the two Eastern Division 
berths In the VSAC Tourna- 
ment. They dropped the Bulls 
at Harrogate 16-3 in the final 
game of the season. 

LMU won the encounter play- 
ed here May 8 by a score of 
3-1. They took advantage of 
some wildness by Buff pitcher 
Dave Phillips and used some 
fine pitching by lefthander Lar- 
ry Mayes to subdue Milligan. 
The only Buff run was scored 
In the sixth when Mike Mut- 
terspaugh socked a triple and 
scored on a wild payoff throw 
by the catcher.

Dr. Tsao participates in Geneva 
religious conference for peace 

From March 31 to April 
4, 1970, Dr. Wen Yen Tsao, 
professor of East Asian Studies 
at Mllligan attended the Sec- 
ond Spiritual Summit Confer- 
ence of the Temple of Under- 
standing In the Intercontinen- 
tal Hotel at Geneva, Switzer- 

The theme for the conference 
was "Practical Requirements 
for World Peace." 

The Temple of Understand- 
ing, Inc., which was founded 
In 1960, was the spiritual off- 
spring of an American house- 
wife, Mrs. Dlckerman Holll- 
ster, from Greenwich, 

Connecticut. Mrs. Hollister 
for many years had a dream of 
a benign world In which men 
could live harmoniously and 

peacefully as members of the 
same family regardless of 
race, nationality, faith, or 

The way to this noble ob- 
jective, according to Mrs. Hol- 
lister is through true under- 
standing among men, and 
this understanding can be best 
promoted by and among the 
religions of the world. 

During the spring of 1959, 
Dr. Tsao met and became a 
friend of Mrs. Hollister. She 
is now president oi the Board 
of Directors of the Temple of 
Understanding, and invited Dr. 
Tsao to attend the conference 
in Geneva this year. 

The purpose of the Temple 
of Understanding Is to promote 
understanding between the re- 
ligions of the world by what- 

ever means prove feasible, 
such as publications, confer- 
ences, and personal contact. 
The Ideal and the ideas of 
the Temple of understanding 
are strictly non-political. 
Participating in the conference 
were representatives of many 
of the world's religions. In- 
cluded were Christianity, Bud- 
dhism, Confucianism, Hin- 
duism, Islam, Judaism, and 
many others. 

Mrs. Hollister had invited 
Dr. Tsao as a representative 
of Confucianism. At first he, 
a Christian, felt he would be 
unable to attend, but after much 
thought he decided to go. His 
decision was based on the idea 
that Confucianism is not an 
organized religion.

After sabbaticals 

Dr. Webb, Mr. Price return 

Two Milligan professors, Dr. 
Henry Webb and Mr. Eugene 
Price, have Just returned to 
their teaching dudes after a 
sabbatical leave of absence. 

The professors participated 
in the second year of Mllligan 
College's sabbatical program. 
Through this policy Mllligan 
professors are given an op- 
portunity to do further study 
In their field while being ex- 
cused from teaching for one 

The usual plan Is for a pro- 
fessor lo have a sabbatical leave 
after seven years' service. 
Since Milllgan's program has 
been only recently initiated, the 
professors with the most sen- 
iority have been participating 
In the program first. 

Miss Ivor Jones and Miss 
Lois Hale were the first two 
professors to have a sabbati- 
cal. Then Dr. Webb and Mr. 
Price took theirs last year. 
This year Dr. Robert Fife and 
Dr. Orvel Crowder are partici- 
pating in the program. 

For two semesters this past 
year Dr. Webb studied at Un- 
ion Theological Seminary in New 
York City. He studied Modem 
Church History and Theology, 
and the church's responsibility 
in relation to social problems. 
Union Theological Seminary is 
noted around the country for 
this latter area of study. 

Dr. Webb said it was stimu- 
lating and disturbing to meet 
Junkies, the hardcore unemploy- 
ed, and social misfits In his 
study of christian social re- 
sponsibility. He feels America 
has social problems that she 
doesn't begin to fathom, and 
that most of the Church is un- 
concerned or even hostile to 
these problems. 

Dr. Webb spent his spring 
term at Oxford, England, study- 
ing Medieval History. He felt 
Oxford was completelydlfferent 
from Union Theological Semi- 
nary in that Oxford was an in- 
tellectual retreat with no 
concern for social Issues. 

After studying at Oxford, Dr. 
Webb met his family and took 
a seven-week tour of Europe. 
He visited missions and places 
of historical Interest, traveling 
as far as Athens. 

On his sabbatical. Dr. Webb 
met many prominent theolo- 
gians, including the Archbishop 
of Canterbury, Michael Ram- 
say, and the Reverend Edward 
Schtllebeeckx, author of a new, 
liberal Dutch catechism. Dr. 
Webb was also able to hear the 
Archbishop of Belgium speak 
at the Riverside Church in New 

Mr. Price spent the first half 
of his year traveling. He took 
a two-week trip to Miami and 
attended the wholesale mer- 
chandising market for women's 
fashions. More than 400 manu- 
facturers from all over the 
world participated. 

Mr. Price also examined the 
Economics department of Flor- 
ida Atlantic University In Baca 
Raton, Florida. He visited a 
senior designer of jet aircraft 
engines, who did much of the 
work for the Boeing 747 engines. 
A seminar In Cleveland, Ohio, 
conducted by the Bank Admin- 
istration Institute was another 
highlight of his travels. 

Mr. Price attended a per- 
sonnel conference for teachers 
in Hershey, Pennsylvania which 
was concerned with the place- 
ment of teachers in all levels of 
education. He also spent a week 
in Atlanta, Georgia, attending

a conference conducted by in- 
dustrial recruiters. 

Mr. Price then went to Aus- 
tin, Texas, and took a oneweelc, 
40 hour course in advertising. 
Twenty-two people participated 
in the course, all of whom were 
advertising directors for their 
respective companies. 

Second semester Mr. Price 
spent with the Eastman Che- 
mical Products Corporation in 
Klngspon. He was with the econ- 
omic forecast and market analy- 
sis division. While there, Mr. 
Price prepared an economic 
forecast which the company had 
him present to the New York 
Forecasters Club in New York 

Both professors highly 
praised the sabbatical program, 
saying it put them back in touch 
with the more current aspects 
of their fields of study. They- 
said it was an enjoyable but 
exhausting experience, and are 
looking forward to their next 

plan year's 

Several activities for die 
coming year were planned re- 
cently by the Pre-Med Club. 

A hamburger fry at Pro- 
fessor Lone Slsk's home, who 
sponsors this club, will be held 
on September 11. Open to all 
current members, the fry will 
be held at 6:30 p.m. 

Steve Barnhart was chosen 
as president for the coming 
year. He will be assisted by 
Krikor Tatoyan as secretary 
and Woody Wilson as reporter. 

This club meets once a month, 
and is open to anyone Interested 
In a career In medicine. 

Josh white, Jr. is back 

Josh White, Jr. has been 
scheduled by the Student Coun- 
cil and the Concert Committee 
for a performance at Mllligan 
College on September 25 at 
8:00 p.m. in Seeger Memorial 

Preceeded In excellent en- 
tertaining ability by his Il- 
lustrious father. Josh White, 
Jr. has been performing since 
the age of four. His early 
years were spent largely in 
perfecting his abilities, study- 
ing at New York's Professional 
Children's School with such 
great singers as Leslie Ug- 
gums and Sandra Dee. 

With his father he has toured 
the United States and Europe 
and has appeared in five Broad- 
way plays as well as numerous 
television productions. 

Josh White's primary ac- 
claim is as a singer. However, 
having developed excellence In 
varied areas of performance, 
he is often referred to as 
"The Total Entertainer." The 
appropriateness of this title 
Is apparent In Mr. White's 
ease in establishing comfort- 
able rapport with his audience. 

The Josh White concert con- 

tains music of Joy and sad- 
ness, comedy material, and 
social commentary. Admis- 
sion will be free for Mllligan 
students with current IDcards. 
Visitors may purchase tickets 
for $2.00 at the door only.

Dr. E. Leroy Lawson begins job 
as Administrative Assistant 

Enthusiastic, concerned, de- 
dicated; these words describe 
Dr. E. LeRoy Lawson, who has 
recently begun his first year 
as Administrative Assistant to 
the President of Mllllgan Col- 

Dr. Lawson's Job is to as- 
sist President Jess Johnson In 
creating an efficient college 
program. Much of this work 
will be accomplished on-cam- 

Dr. Lawson will also be re- 
presenting Mllllgan to the 
churches and the community. 
He Is currently working with 
President Johnson to raise the 
remaining money needed for 
the science building. 

The young administrator has 
set several goals for himself 
while he serves as Assistant 
to the President. These goals 
are best expressed in Dr. Law- 
son's own words. 

"--To assist in building a 
college that is both religiously 
and academically respectable. 
This has been Mllligan's goal 
for several years. It is a worth- 
while one. We have done much; 
we have more to do." 

" — To help find the finan- 
cial resources to accomplish 
the first goal. I believe that 

MUligan is worthy of sacrificial 
gifts from her friends. I'll do 
my best to convince people of 
its worth." 

" — To convince Milligan stu- 
dents of their Importance to 
today's world. What the world 
needs now Is men and women 
who will try to live up to Mll- 
ligan's standards — now, and 
after graduation." 

Dr. Lawson came to Mllllgan

In retrospect 

Evaluations of freshman week are as many and varied as are 
the Individuals who participated. Two weeks' removal from the 
fun and fury may have brought a few changes In a new student's 
attitude toward the effectiveness and value of the orientation 
activities. Perhaps a less than happily endured moment may 
now be appreciated for some previously obscured worth. Cer- 
tainly the merits In Introducing freshmen to each other and to 
Mllllgan must be recognized, and the Student Council planners 
and team leaders are to be commended for their concern and 
dedication. The freshmen too displayed admirable cooperation. 

We would like to suggest that the weaknesses of freshman week 
may not be In the planned activities themselves, but that tbey 
may be In tbe attitudes of a significant part of the student body. 
Perhaps there is need for modification of a not-so-respectable 
Mllllgan tradition of upperclass dominance and freshman degrada- 
tion. We are not advocating the exclusion of fun from freshman 
week, nor. do we suggest that freshmen should be treated royally. 
Freshmen, however, should be accepted as important individ- 
uals who have needs and who also have much to offer. 

Might It be possible to renew a Mllllgan tradition of honest 
cordiality, good humor, and considerate fun? Must we wait until 
another freshman week to consider this possibility? 

Editors encourage letters 

The STAMPEDE welcomes and encourages letters to the editor 
from the students, faculty, and administration of Milligan College. 

Such letters are a means through which concerned people not on 
the STAMPEDE staff cancontribute to the newspaper by expressing 
opinions on various subjects. 

Letters should be based on truth, not on rumor. They should not 
be libelous, slanderous, or vulgar. Letters not in accordance with 
these guidelines may be shortened or withheld from publication at 
the discretion of the editors. 

Writers must identify tnemselves by name, class, and major 
and must limit their letters to 250 words. The letters may be mailed 
to P. O. Box 214, Milligan College, Tennessee 37682, placed in the 
STAMPEDE box In the Dean's Office, or submitted personally to 
one of the editors. 



The Sense of B.O. 

Politicians will tell you that 
in 1952 a general was elected 
as President to end a war In 

Economists will tell you that 
a product called television could 
not keep up with the demands of 
Its market. 

Those who read deeply into 
the corners of the newspapers 
would find a few facts about 
a war In Indo-China. 

But, as these affairs of the 
world entered into the pages of 
historical permanence, that 
same leap year provided more 
durable representative for a 
distant decade. 

Thus, ] dedicate toyou, fresh- 
man class, noble products of the 
year 1952, this conglomerate 
of letters and all the white 
spaces In between. 

You arrived at Milligan Col- 
lege three weeks ago. Do you 
feel any different today? 

You have been tangled tested, 
and teathered to the traditions 
of a small liberal arts college. 
You endured well the prelimin- 
ary examinations of freshman 
orientation and now you are 
ready to pursue some degree 
of excellence. 

You left home to be dis- 
oriented in the ways of a dor- 
mitory resident. That is, you 
began learning how to adjust 
your sleeping habits to the thun- 
dering noise above you. Many 
of you have grown accustomed 
to signing out and in every even- 
ing. Still others of you have 
found out that even though it is 
said that the best things In life 
are free, a college education 
is not. 

Remember freshmen, you are 
not the first to take this grue- 
some test of humility. During 
your first week, 1 reminisced 
with others who, many years 
past, went blundering our way 
through the same college ad- 
justment period. 

I had to ask where the Chapel 
was, as did many of you. I 
had to learn that one does not 
Iron wool socks. And of course, 
I was as gullible as the day 
was long. 

A system of points guided 

Bill Gates 

our orientation. Holocaust was 
for all the bad people or those 
who rejected the traditional 
values of freshman week. 1 
worked for the good of the 
cause, but, while keeping my 
enthusiasm alive, I lost my 
name badge and went through 
the hellish ceremony anyway. 

Since that time, 1 have been 
against Holocaust. It Is distaste- 
ful, crude, and not near to any 
practical application for ad- 
justing one to college life. 

It will be phased out of col- 

lege orientation in the future, 
because it is useless and acts 
as a chaotic attempt to relieve 
some upperclass men's inner 
tension on Innocent victims. 

Whether or not you par- 
ticipated In Holocaust is im- 
material now. You are here, 
encouraged by a faculty, ad- 
ministration, and student body, 
who will inspire you and Invite 
you to become a part of Mil- 
ligan College. 

To the class of 1974, the 
people of 1952— Welcome.

■lappy Sept. Ill Last Monday, as you spent Labor Day In class 
s only a national holiday) did you find youself wondering 
at you were doing at Mllllgan during tbefirst week of September? 
rure don't know, but here we all are, spending the last weeks 
summer at Mllligan College, borne of Christian Education, 
S Hope Of The World, The Cure For Pollution. As usual. 
. school year began with Fall Convocation, in which we were 
.ased to learn that, although each of us prduces five pounds 
isolld human waste per day (Herculean even for a Buffalo), 
,d ol' Mllligan U. also holds the answer to the pollution pro- 
]'ms of the world, through (of course) Christian Education, 
o days later we were not quite as pleased to learn that the 
. aial Frosh-Upperclassmen tug-o-war could not be held over 
jEfilo Creek because . . . the Creek seems to be polluted. 

Xm't say nothing ever changes at Mllllgan. Last year the Webb 
II Coke machines were filled by the dorm president. In an 
arant effort to make life easier for the poor fool who accepted 
i Job, Webb's Head Resident has decided that this job should 
done by theCoke route man,Flne, unti! somebody gets thirsty. 
• night 1 decided 1 wanted a Root Beer. Of course, one Webb 
chine was empty and the other didn't work. Pardee's machines 
\t also empty, as were Cheek's, Sutton's, and Hart's. Faint 
tm thirst, 1 finally stumbled into the Student Council room, 
,;re I found a machine which actually contained a lew small, 
-ounce bottles ol Coke — no Root Beer, of course. I was 
: peratc, so 1 dropped in my quarter, and got my Coke — the 
chine kept my change, but I don't want to be picky. So I had 
Iced a mile and a half to pay a quarter for a 10-ounce bottle 
Coke that I didn't want in the first place, but far be it from 
to complain. 

suppose you all know by now that all electric appliances 
ier than pop-corn poppers must be registered with the busi- 
is office this year. I guess I'll nave to register (on separate 
ms, 1 hope) my electric fan, electric blanket, electric clock 
Ho, electric stereo, electric razor, electric desk lamp, electric 
le lamp, electric tooth-brush and electric water-pick. I wonder 
at I'd do without TVA. 

'here was quite a bit of discussion this year over whether 
not Holocaust should be included in Freshman Week (it's 
idition, you know |) One upperclassman expressed her exaspera- 
with the philosophy of this year's Freshman week when she 
(aimed "Why do we have to so nice to them?" More upper- 
ssmen felt that, although Holocaust is unplesant, it makes 
new student feel that he has earned the right to be a member 
the Milligan Family. I can't help wondering — do I really 
lit to be known as a member of a group into which you can 
,a membership by sitting like a fool in the wet grass with an 

smashed on your head? _,

forum determines Lehigh policy 

Bethlehem. Pa. -(LP.) - Le- 
high University, as a total 
academic community made up 
of students, faculry and ad- 
ministrators, has taken a Large 
step in restructuring its uni- 
versity governance system. 
The combined groups have re- 
commended the creation of a 
student-faculty forum with 60 
students and 60 faculty and 
5 administrators, all with vot- 
ing privileges and far at least 
one trustee and one alumnus as 
non-voting partici p a n ts. 

This Forum would have a di- 
rect line of communication to 
and from the trustees and 
would have the number of leg- 
islative fun ct ions. Including 
policy-setting, review, re- 
commendarian powers, provid- 
ing students a larger gov- 
ernance role than ever before 
in Lehigh's history. 

All actions of the Forum 
would be subject to the ap- 
proval of the board of trustees, 
the ultimate legal authority far 
Lehigh. The recommendation 
also provides for two students 
and two faculty members as 
non- voting members of the 

The recommended Forum 
would have legislative author- 
ity. The faculty would retain 
primary responsibility in the 
area of curriculum, course 
content, instruction methods, 
conduct of research, faculty 
hiring, status and tenure, aca- 
demic discipline, and award- 
ing of degrees. 

However, the recommenda- 
tion formeleglslativefunctions 
of the Forum would provide 
increased student participa- 
tion, witb as many students 
as faculty members voting, in 
setting policy on academic pro- 
gram and planning, social life 
and regulations, extracur- 
ricular activities and athletics, 
and academic environment: 
such as admissions, registra- 
tion, calendar, residence and 
dining, bookstore, buildings and 
grounds, library and computer. 

The Forum would also have 
the authority to review long- 

range planning, such as acade- 
mic development, staff re- 
quirements, farflMeJ and the 
overall budget, community 
relations, and ail administra- 
tive appointments at the rank 
of dean and above. And the 
new governance unit would also 
have the aathority to review, 
with policy recommendations, 

matters pertaining to curricu- 
lum, research, and academic 

The Forum would determine 
its own rules of procedure. 
Its own chairmanandfrequency 
of meetings and would deter-

Dean's Corner 

Dean C. Robert Wetzel 

A lew years ago 1 was eating dinner with a Mllllgan alumnus 
in Johnson City. A young man walked into the restaurant and my 
friend observed. "That must be a Milligan student!" He was 
right but 1 asked him why he thought so. He answered with all 
the prescience of a graduate: "He looks like a Milligan student. 
To this day 1 do not know what characteristics my friend bad 
in mind when he made this judgment. But the thought of being 
able to recognize Milligan students and faculty by certain visible 
qualifies stirs my Imagination. Let me suggest these character- 
istics which, I hope, serve to identify us as a member of Milligan 

Committment to Jesus Christ as Lord: Socrates reminded 
those who would be wise (the Sophist) that wisdom began witb a 
humbleness inspired by a recognition of our own ignorance. 
Jesus said, "I am the way, ibe truth and the life; no one comes 
to the Father, but by me." (John 14:6 RSV) Because God's Trutb 
is revealed to us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth we must 
possess that humbleness of spirit that enables us to accept the 
Christ as Lord. 

Acatfcmic Integrity: D. E. Trueblood notes, "The Chris t ia n 
faith, when it understands itself, is the sworn enemy of all in- 
tellectual dishonesty and sboddlness." (The Idea of a College) 
A college education is more than memorizing bits of Lniormation 
to be recalled for parade duty on examination day. Professor 
Lone Sisk reminded me this morning that teachers have no 
magic formulas for learning. The primary responsibility for 
learning rests with the student. The teacher may prod, chal- 
lenge and demonstrate skills, but the student must want to learn 
and he must have the will to achieve. 

Concern for the Welfare of Others: It Is no accident that a 
large percentage of Milligan graduates pursue careers In the 
so— called "service professions" (teaching, social work, medi- 
cine, ministry etc.). Jesus reminds us that the King will say to 
those who fed the hungry and served those in need, " — as you 
did it to one of the least of my brethren, you did it to me." 
(Man. 25:40 RSV) A concern for the welfare of others goes be- 
yond the general sense of goodwill and helpfulness that we show 
to each other. It extends beyond the campus as students and 
faculty participate in the life of the community by serving where 
needs are found. 

At St Norbert College 

Personalized majors offered 

West De Pere, Wis. - (LP.) 
- Curricular changes, designer! 
to give the St. Ncrbert College 
student much greater freedom 
In selecting courses and his 
major, will take effect here 

Each student will have the 
option of personalizing his 
major either within a division 
(humanities and fine arts, na- 
tural sciences, and social 
sciences) or by combining 
courses from all divisions. 

Most students, however, arc 
expected to select their major 
along conventional disciplin- 
ary lines, although theydohavc 
the option of choosing a broad 
interdisciplinary major such as 
social science, or even of being 

a "nanmajor" and receive no 
grade on their transcript. 

The system of 120 credits 
for graduation will be abolished 
in favor of 32 courses, or four 
each semester. Eight of these 
must be selected from divis- 
ions outside the student's ma- 
jor division, 

A student will have the op- 
portunity to "test our" of most 
courses. Passing the test, given 
whenever he thmii; be can 
handle It, be will receive re- 
cognition for the course and go 
on to independent studv. If he 
fails it, he will simply continue 
in the course. 

New divisional and inter- 
drvislanal majors will be de- 
veloped by the faculty to re- 

flect contemporary issues and 
student concerns. 

Students who are involved In 
off - campus work - study pro- 
jects will receive course re- 
cognition for them. 

Two days will be set aside 
each semester for a campus- 
wide examination of a contem- 
porary issue, patterned after 
the college's highly successful 
Vietnam Moratorium Day ap- 
proach last October. 

On that occasion, all sides 
and shades of opinion weregiv- 
en an opportunity to be heard 
in whatever method they 
chose. Great care was taken 
not to overload the program In 
any direction.

orders due

All seniors planning to grad-

year must have a graduation 
announcement packet. These 
are available from the regis- 
trar. Whether or not an order 
is placed, the form must be 
returned September 14-16, 
1970. All detailed Information 
is enclosed In the packet. 

Construction of Mllllgan's 
new science complex is now un- 
der way as an example of Mll- 
llgan's recent growth. 

To be Mllllgan's newest facil- 
ity, It is the first phase of 
a ten-year Improvement plan 
outlined by President Jess John- 

Other construction outlined 
in the ten -year program in- 
cludes the expansion of the Stu-

Checking of convocation at- 
tendance will commence at 9:30; 
students not in their appro- 
priate places when the roll 
is taken will be considered 
absent with no tardiness ex- 
cuses being accepted. 

The Convocation Committee 
has also established the policy 
that no excuses for convoca- 
tion cuts will be accepted more 
than one week after the date 
of the absence. 

A student will receive aler- 
ter from the committee when 
he has been charged with two 
absences. After the fourth ab- 
sence, he will be asked to 
consult wirb the academic dean. 
Following the fifth absence, 
the matter will be referred to 
the dean who will inform the 
student that he Is ineligible 
for enrollment the following 

Hon of a new field house, and 
the remodeling of the Adminis- 
tration Building. 

Ground breaking for the new 
science complex was June 8, 
and the building will be com- 
pleted by approximately Sep- 
tember 1, 1971. 

Dr. E. LeRoy Lawson, Ad- 
ministrative Assistant to the 
President, expressed the rea- 
son for building a new science 
complex. "It w *s felt that the 
present science facilities were 
not adequate and that the new 
Science Building would be a 
pledge of our concern In the 
area of scientific learning." 

Situated between the present 
Student Union Building and the 
Cheek Activity Building, the 
complex will have 24 research 
station labs, two 30 student 
class rooms, and storage space 
for chemicals and equipment. 

Special use rooms, such as a 
darkroom, an animal room, and 
a cold room will be Included 
in the facilities. 

In addition to the labs and 
special rooms, the building will 
adjoin a 300 seating capacity, 
multi-purpose lecture pod. 

Although the pod's main use 
will be in the area of science, 
ir will also be available for use 
to other areas of learning. 

Because of the expanded 
facilities, it will be possible 
for the science curriculum to 
be expanded considerably next 

Cost for the 23,785 square 
feet complex is estimated at 
$937,656. Approximately $250,- 

000 have already been secured. 
However, $750,000 are needed 
to complete the building's fund. 

To secure the needed funds, 
a one million dollar campaign 
will be launched to tap every 
financial source available to 
Milllgan. Of this one million 
dollars, $300,000 will be placed 
In a library holding fund for the 
purchasing of books. 

"Need Is felt for establishing 
the library holding fund," Dr. 
Lawson explained, "because 
over the past several years we 
have not been able to buy the 
number of books a school of 
this size ought to have." 

Planning stages for the 
science complex date Into the 
1950's. The planning committee 
consisted of all the science 
faculty and four consultants 
from other universities and col-

One man-one vote principle 
applied in frosh elections 

FROSH REPRESENTATIVES— Relaxing in the Student Council 
Room after winning the recent election are Cindy Williams, Mark 
Lee, Wes Starkey, Wayne Hoicomb, and I'am Stevens. 

This year's freshman stu- 
dent council election showed 
a first In elections at Milligan 
with each person voting for one 
representative Instead of the 
usual two. 

The limited Voting was done, 
according to Student council 
President John Rohrbaugh 
''. . . in order to avoid having 
the same group ol students elect 
all five representatives to the 
Student Council by voting twice 
for male and female representa- 

'This year for the- first time, 
each student was allowed only 
one vote tor each officer. The- 
oretically this permits a second 
smaller group ol students to be 
represented on the council as 

The candidates were EdBrun- 
gard and Wesley Starkey for 
president; Wayne Hoicomb, Rex 
Bell, and Mark Lee for male 
representative: and Sharon 
Chernick, Chris Forsythe, Pair. 
Stephens, and Cindy Williams 
for female reprsentatlve. 

The new freshman repre- 
sentatives are; Wesley Starkey, 
president; and Pam Stephens, 
Cindy Williams, Wayne Hoi- 
comb, and Mark Lee, repre- 

According to John Rohrbaugh 
sixty percent of this year's 
freshman class voted. The 
primary election results were 

announced publicly, and the 
general opinion among the can- 
didates was favorable. 

"Some upperclassmen ex- 
pressed to me that the losers 
in the race would be hurt to 
find out the exact vote. I haven't 
heard any comments from these 
people to validate this," was 
John Rohrbaugh's comment. 

Held m conjunction with the 
elections were two forums In- 
volving the candidates. Accord- 
ing to Rohrbaugh the forums 
were a "complete flop" with a 
small number of students at- 
tending each one.

The STAMPEDE, Friday, September 25. 1970 - paee 3 

Knowles, Cameron named 
religious and social heads 

Student Council President 
John Rohrbaugh has created the 
offices of Secretary of Social 
Activities and Secretary of 
Christian Emphasis to help 
fill the need for a Coordin- 
ator of Student Life at Mll- 

Rohrbaugh appointed Steve 
Knowles to the Social Secre- 
tary position and Mark Cam- 
eron as Christian Emphasis 
leader. In addition to several 
activities which each hope to 
carry out, they plan to work 
together on various projects 
which will benefit Milllgan both 
socially and spiritually. 

Knowles plans to use the Stu- 
dent Council social budget for 
something other than two or 
three parties in the gym. In 
the past, no one has been in 
charge of this area, and not all 
of the budget has been used. 

Currently, the council Is giv- 
ing financial support to the "In- 
finite Bridge" 'Coffeehouse. The 
coffeehouse is organized by a 
group of students not affiliated 
with the council, but because 
they provide a much needed so- 
cial activity eachSaturdaynlght, 
they are considered worthy of 
council support, 

Knowles wants to work with 

the Cheerleaders to promote 
attendance at Basketball games. 
"Basketball is the biggest so- 
cial activity Milllgan has at 
present," says Knowles, and so 
he desires to promote spirit and 
support for the team. 

He Is also a member of the 
Concert Committee and will be 
working with the committee in 
another area of planning social 
events for Milllgan. 

Mark Cameron has formed a 
committee to help him promote 
"Christian participation on 
campus." Committee members 
are Bill Howden, Bob Wells, 
Bill Heck, Sharon Hamilton, 
and Sandy Jones. They will 
help him with any informal 
projects throughout the year. 
In addition to planning the Fall 
and Spring Christian Emphasis 

The committee conducted a 
survey of campus ministers a- 
cross the country to determine 
what approach would be best 
for Milllgan. The results are 
unclear, but Cameron Is inter- 
ested In the coffeehouse Idea 
and possibly In youth rallies 
on campus. 

Plans have been completed 
for the Fall Christian Empha- 
sis Week, beginning October 6. 

The "Exkurslons," a Christian 
rock group from Pittsburg, will 
be featured. The Exkurslons 
are a part of the "Pittsburg 
Experiment" and consist of 
four-man band plus a trained 
counselor who travels with 
them. They will perform in 
Convocation and have Informal 
meeting3 In the evenings. 

Both Knowles and Cameron 
plan to encourage any students 
who want to take initiative In 
promoting social or religious 
activities on campus, and to 
achieve these goals through any 
available outlet. They are both 
optimistic that the religious and 
social life at Milllgan will Im- 
prove this year. 

John Rohrbaugh bungles another job as he tries io help cabinet 
officers Knowles and Cameron paint their SUB office. Secretary 
of Social Activities Knowles manages to get a hand in the matter. 

In third year 

Band prepares for season 

Emmanuel enrollment 
reaches new high 

Emmanuel School of Re- 
ligion's enrollment has ex- 
ceeded 100 for the first time 
with 102 students being regis- 
tered for the fall semester. 

Thirty-two are new students, 
49 are continuing students, and 
21 are students who have yet 
to complete a thesis or re- 
search project before receiv- 
ing their degree. 

Fifty - nine students are 
studying toward the Master 
of Divinity Degree (formerly 
Bachelor of Divinity) 38 are 
seeking the Master of Re- 
ligious Education degree, and 
5 are special non-degree stu- 
dents. Twenty of the Emmanuel 
students received undergrad- 
uate degrees from MUligan 

Officers of the 1970-71 Stu- 
dent Association are Stephen 
Kasserman, Redmond, Oregon, 
president; Larry Fraley, Ana- 
cones, Washington, vice pres- 
ident; and Cara Snyder, Win- 
ston-Salem, North Carolina, 

Dr. Fred P. Thompson, Jr., 
who served as part-time pres- 
ident while he was minister oi 
the First Christian Church of 
Kingspon last year, became 
full-time Emmanuel president 

on August 1. He will be in- 
augurated in a formal cere- 
mony In Seeger Memor 1^ 1 Chap- 
el on November 5. Dr. Delno 
W. Brown was Installed as 
dean at Emmanuel's annual 
convocation on September 3. 

In the third year of Us ex- 
istence, the MUligan College 
Pep Band will again appear at 
home basketball games and 
other school activities. 

Professor of music, j*otm 
Dowd, will direct the organ- 
isation. He is chairman of Mil- 
llgan's Fine Arts Department 
and Is also a private piano 

The Pep Band grew out of a 
desire by both students and 
faculty members toform aper- 
maneni instrumental music or- 
ganization on campus. 

Local high schools have 
loaned both Instruments and 
sheet music for the band's 
use. Various MUligan service 
organizations have donated 
money lor instrument repair 
and sheet music. 

Most of the members oi the 
band own their own instruments. 

but large instruments and a 
few small Instruments are 
available for loan to students. 

This semester, PepBandbe- 
came a part of the sched- 
ule of classes and Is offer- 
ed for one hour of credit. 

In addition to last year's 
music selections. Pep Band 
has acquired such popular songs 

as The Horse, Everybody's 
Talk'ln, Classical Cas, Ode to 
joy, and others. 

The band is open to anyone 
who can play a band instrument. 
It Is not necessary to take Pep 
Band for credit. 

Pep Band meets every Sun- 
day night In lower Seeger, at 
8:30 p.m. 

Fall statistics reveal 
enrollment to be 798 

A toial of 838 students have 
been registered for the fall 
semester at MUligan, the lar- 
gest class being the freshmen, 
with 252 enrolled. 

Of the freshman class, 121 
students are men and 131 are 
women. This can be compared 
to last year's enrollment of 
freshmen which wa s 25". with 
132 men and 127 women. 

Tennessee still remains the 
largest representative state, 
having Mo students, compared 
with last year's 1 Q0 students. 

The appeal of Milllgan to the 
foreign student has increased 
this semester. As compared to 
the first semester enrollment 
last year of six foreign stu- 
dents rcpresentlngjapan. South 

Ameri.a and Canada; we have 
dropped South America and 
added one more Canadian, a 
Guyana n, an Indian, a Jamaican, 
a Lebanese, a Malayan, a Rhod- 
esian, a Syrian and a Thailander 
to bring the total to eleven 
loreign students. 

Total commuters have drop- 
ped from 230 to 185 and trans- 
fer students have also fallen 
from 89 to 60.

Looking Forward 

Among the great variety of people who are Mlltlgan College there 
are thoughtful and concerned individuals. They are thoughtful not 
necessarily as philosophers but as honest and sincere thinkers 
with a grasp of life's essence and values. They possess a sense of 
what is right, and they try to contribute significantly to the life of 
Miiligan College. Their concern for MLlligan, however, Is centered 
primarily In people rather than in policy. 

Such thinkers have always been a part of Mllllgan. However, this 
year it seems that more of them are taking the Initiative to trans- 
late their thoughts into actions. A variety of student-organized 
activities have already transpired in these first few weeks of school. 
The motivation for these activities has arisen from an apparent un- 
selfish desire to meet the social and spiritual needs of the students 
of MllUgan College. 

In recent years students have been concerned with such ques- 
tions as, "How much can we alter the administration and school 
policies?" and "How can we change the Miiligan College?" At- 
tention this year appears to be directed more toward "What can 
we do within the situation which exists at Mllllgan?" and "How 
can we make use of what we already have here?" Perhaps we are 
discovering some potentials in MUllgas which have been overlooked 
before. Perhaps we are finding that we need not wait for the ad- 
ministration to provide opportunities for us, but that we can open 
opportunities for ourselves if we will only make the effort to do so. 

Initiative and enthusiasm are commendable qualities. Channeled 
properly and constructively, they can lead to rewarding and worth- 
while accomplishments. Unchanneled, they may create unnecessary 
difficulties and failures. Continued conscientious direction of the 
enthusiasm already evident this year at Mllllgan will lead to pre- 
viously unrealized personal satisfaction and Individual growth.

Every year Mllllgan, like 
most small colleges. Is in- 
flicted with a rash of rumors 
circulating the campus. 

Last Spring the rumor sit- 
uation on campus seemed to 
reach almost epidemic pro- 
portions. It looks as if this 
year will bring no change to 
the problem of rumors, for 
already many rumors are mak- 
ing their rounds. 

Exactly why and how a rumor 

can get started is a near im- 
possibility to determine. No 
one individual or group can be 
pinpointed as being solely re- 
sponsible for the nourishing 
and spreading of a pjmor. A 
rumor is rather the product 
of several factors, which must 
be recognised If any thing is 
to be done to help eliminate 
this spreading of rumors. 

One factor which contri- 
butes to the growthof the rumor 
Is the size of MllUgan. Unlike 
the large universities where 
rumors often go unnoticed in 
the dense saturation of stu- 
dents, the very size of a small 
college seems to encourage the 
spreading of rumors. It is not, 

Oakland University changes 
graduation requirements 

Rochester, Mich. - (LP.) 
Oakland University has eli- 
minated the falling grade and 
has radically altered Its grad- 
uation requirements for any 
students who wish to plan their 
own education. 

The education reform pro- 
posals were adopted by the 
University Senate, the inter- 
nal governing body of the in- 
stitution. The recommenda- 
tions were presented to the 
Senate by a Blue Ribbon Com- 
mittee on Education Reform, 
a group of six students and six 
representatives of faculty and 

The commission was formed 
at the urging of a student group 
called "people for thepeople." 
Unlversiryofficial3 feel the cat- 
alyst for the reform movement 
was a year-long series of con- 
ferences, classes and discuss- 
ions on "The University in 
Crisis." The conference ex- 
amined both traditional and 
possible new approaches to 
American higher education. 

The reforms allow a student 
to create his own independent 
concentration (major) from 
among existing courses in the 
University catalogue. Other 
students may elect the trad- 
itional majors with required 

In addition, the F has been 
eliminated for all students. 
Anyone failing to successfully 
complete a course will now 
receive an N for no credit. 
The N will not appear on the 
student's transcript. The Uni- 
versity will grade on a grad- 
uated four-point scale from 
1.0 to 4.0. 

Under the new curriculum, 
a student electing an Indepent 
concentration would plan his 
own sequence of courses, pre- 
sent them for approvalof anad- 
vlser and a committee on In- 
struction, and graduate with an 
independent concentration ra- 
ther than, for example, a trad- 
itional major In English or 

Other students taking tradi- 
tional majors may have two 
options. They may elect a strict 
course of study with required 
courses to help lead to certi- 
fication for a graduate school 
or they may take a less stru- 
tured program leading to a 

liberal arts degree. 

Oakland is continuing study 
of Its University - wide dis- 
tribution requirements of 36 
credits which are taken by all 
students, regardless of pro- 
gram. The requirements (us- 
ually nine courses) are de- 
signed to provide all students 
with minimal experience In lit- 
erature, Western history and 
philosophy, fine arts, natural 
sciences, social sciences and 
humanities, and they include 
the study of at least one non- 
Western culture. For gradua- 
tion all students must success- 
fully complete 124 credits (us- 
ually 31 courses) with a 2.0 

In explaining the changes 
Chancellor Donald D. O'Dowd 
said, ' 'there are Increasing 
numbers of highly motivated 
students for whom the tradi- 
tional majors, requirements 
and certification procedures 
for graduate school are no 
longer relevant." 

therefore, inconceivable that 
at any one time a certain 
rumor may be among the 
thoughts of the whole student 
body of a small college. 

Mllllgan seems to generate 
rumors not only due to its size 
but also through what appears 
to be a lack of responsible 
communication. This Is not to 
say that MllUgan does not have 
the means for communications, 
but rather thai Mllllgan either 
misuses or falls to use 3uch 

The responsibility of the stu- 
dent paper to report accurately 
and correcUy the events and 
problems of the school has not 
always been fulfilled In the 
past. The lack of ethical Jour- 
nalism In reporting hasat times 
been added fuel to rumors. 
Though the STAMPEDE has 
emphasized accuracy this year, 
the responsibility of such a task 
seems so overwhelming that it 
would be Impossible to assure 
total accuracy. 

Miiligan College takes great 
pride in Its idea of being Just 
one big "family." However, It 
seems to be a family that Is 
made up of members who are 
not totally open with each other. 
The administration and the stu- 
dent body appear to be unable 
to get together in an effort 
to stop rumors. Though inten- 
tions are good, the actual an- 
ions of both parties are almost 
apathetic. It Is as if to say, 
"Wait long enough and every- 
thing will go away." However, 
few things go away by them- 
selves, including rumors. 

Hopefully, this year better 
communication between ad- 
ministration and the student 
body will help eliminate 
rumors around Miiligan. The 
lack of campus rumors would 
not only alleviate some pro- 
blems, but would also help 
increase the morale and spirit 
of the college. 


Dean's Corner 

Dean C. Robert Wetzel 

Let me begin by congratulating Marie Garrett and hex staff for 
a fine premier issue of the 1970STAMPEDE. This first issue shows 
every promise of maintaining the high standards set by last year's 
award winning student newspaper. Few people are aware of the hours 
of work and the conscientious concern required to produce each 
issue of the STAMPEDE. 

With Rod Irvln having achieved alumnus status, Melvln Morton 
and Steve Khowles have evidently decided to replace "Buffalo Meat" 
with "Human Pollution." Steve's final paragraph and Bill Oates 
article had some Interesting remarks concerning Holocaust. These 
remarks coupled with the lead editorial and Mike Gearhart's car- 
toon would Indicate that some serious thought Is being given to the 
character of freshman orientation in the contemporary academic 

This past year Miiligan College completed a two year self-study 
program requested by the Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools. The basic procedure of the self-study was quite simple: 
State the purpose of the college and then show how each function of the 
college serves this purpose. Perhaps it is now rime for us to ask 
ourselves. "How do the traditional activities of freshmen orientation 
contribute to the fulfillment of the purpose of Mllllgan College?"

Student Council and library 

SUGGESTION: How about permanently closing the library, 
ing the S.U.B. to that building, and using the library budget to 

,,ce a bussing service for Mllllgan students to the E.T.S.U. 

iir y7 The brick walls of the old S.U.B. could be replaced by 
3 ones and the building could be used to house the Business 

're along with the rest of the Hardin Hall Offices. Hardin Hall 
d then be converted Into a full time psychiatric ward which this 

.e needs almost as much as a new field house. 

he Freshman Class Is to be congratulated for readily accepting 
all-rime favorite Mllllgan tradition - apathy. A grand total cf 
• m(7) showed up at the forum for the Freshman candidates last 
lnesday. That's 2.857% of the class I ! 1 

1 course, the big story this week Is the proposed Milligan Buf- 
Herd. It seems that President Johnson suggested this idea to the 
lor Class as a class project. Nobody was more enthusiastic 
ut It than Class President BUJ Oates. He has already sent one 
er of Inquiry - not asking for a buffalo, but asking how to ask 

omeone came up with an ad in the back of an old POPULAR 
CHANICS magazine offering to give away buffaloes to whoever 
ild take them. Investigation into this possibility, however, proved 
ippolntlng. It seems that none of the Buffalo In this herd had 
particular desire to come to Milligan College. Herd owner 
man Hoof explained in this way: "Well, I guess the Buffalo 
eradon Front is as strong here as anywhere. My boys Just feel 
t they would be too restricted at that place. They are not turned 
by the rule which requires buffalo to live on campus, and they 
not feel that there Is any future for their social life in either 
zabethton, Johnson City, or the S.U.B." 

mother problem which Bill Oates will be facing is the age-old 
'!Silon, "Where do you put a buffalo?" Anglln Field Is out. A 
nk from the nearby Buffalo Creek would be the quickest way to 
an end to the Senior Class Project. The Webb Hall lawn is pre- 
itly being occupied by Coach Walker's horses who are reportedly 
so happy about the buffalo Idea anyway. The only possibilities 
lch the Housing Committee have come up with so far are: {a) 

■ Student Council room, (b) the Pardee Showers, and/or (c) 

■ unbound periodical section of the library. 

\n unconfirmed report presents another possible stumbling 
•ck. Informed sources have it that the Maintenance foreman, 
eston Kyte has flatly refused to clean up after the buffaloes. 
,s far as I'm concerned, it can Just lay there and fertilize the 
aind," he Is quoted as saying. 

As if there weren't already enough problems. Business J. Moore 
s come out against the project because of the staggering ex- 
nses of upkeep (buffaloes have babies too , you know). This 
sms, however, to be an ultimately minor consideration. If the 
hool can afford to spend $9,000 to convert the Hospitality Center 
o i glass cage, then the buffalo bill should present no problem, 
sides, if worse came to worse, we could always bolster our 
leterta menu with Buffalo Meat. 

After one month of stay at 
Milligan College, every new- 
comer comes out of his Incuba- 
don period. Being one such 
newcomer, I would like to pre- 
sent two issues to those of 
the student body who may be 

First, I question the claim 
of the entire incumbent Stu- 
dent Council as being a re- 
presentative body of the stu- 
dents for the current academic 
year. The present Council, ex- 
cluding the Freshmen repre- 
sentativesof course, wereelect- 
ed In office by a student body 
the previous academic year. 

True, as present Student 
Council laws and by laws 
governing elections stand, the 
incumbent council is legal. Yet 
it was elected by students at the 
end of the last academic year. 


I would like to make the 
following suggestions concern- 
bag Mllllgan's convocatlonpro- 

1. During the past several 
'convocation services, there has 

been Increased evidence that 
many Milligan College students 
have little regard for the speak- 
er or their fellow student. 

2. As a general rule most 
students pick up their mall be- 
fore convocation service and 
read It during the service. The 
convocation service also ap- 
pears to be prime time to catch 
up on the latest gossip. Al- 
though such practices are ob- 
viously rude to the speaker, 
even more important, they are 
distracting to any Individual 
in the audience that may be 
interested in what the speaker- 
Is saying. The rustle of paper, 
whispering voices, and someone 
chewing his gum noisily are 
enough to distract even the 
most conscientious persons at- 
tention from the speaker. 

3. Due to the conduct of many 
students, it Is suggested that a 
speaker be selected for a future 
convocation service'tb present 
a speech that will benefit us 
all: Common Courtesy and 
Everyday Etiquette 

4. Any attention give to this 
request will be appreciated by 
at least one Mllllgan student 
that "also attends" convoca- 
tion service. 

5. Thank you for your con-

some of whom may have left 
Milligan by now. There are 
others who have freshlyarrlved 
(transfers). It appears a more 
logical representation may 
occur if the entire student body 
elections are held at the be- 
ginning of each academic year. 
The retiring members of the 
out-going body may help initiate 
the elections and undertake 
those few programs that are 
necessary to start the college 
year. But they should then bow 
down to a fresh start, from a 
"truly" representative body of 
currently enrolled students. 

My second Issue Is Mllllgan 
College's Library hours. In this 
1 wish to direct my point to the 
Student Council, since I feel 
that they alone could muster the 
necessary student support. I 
would like the Council to pass 
a resolution extending library 
hours for the weekends to in- 
clude 8 a.m. through 10 p.m. 
on Saturdays and from 2 p.m. 
through 10 p.m. on Sundays. The 
Mllllgan College Library is not 
extensive, yet it Is exhaustive 
enough for students to take full 
advantage of. The extended 
hours will greatly facilitate stu- 
dents who struggle through book 
reports on regular week days.

NEW OFFICES — First known as President Walker's house, then 
the Hospitality House, this building now holds luxurious new- 
offices for Mllllgan personnel. The school went to considerable 
expense to provide the sorely needed office space, a sign of 
Mllllgan's continued growth.

Student Council support makes 
frosh basketball team possible 

The Student Council con- 
tinues to p a s s and act upon 
legislation to improve student 
life at Mllllgan College [or the 
ensuing academic year. 

During the meeting of Sep- 
tember 17, Mr. Charlie Alder- 
man reported to the council 
that the freshmen would be un- 
able to conduct an inter-col- 
legiate basketball team due 
to the reduced athletic bud- 
get. He informed the council 
that approximately four-hun- 
dred dollars was required to 
operate the annual squad. 

A total of two-hundred dol- 
lars wag pledged to make 
possible the team for the fresh- 
men. Fifty dollars of this pledge 
came from the Special Pro- 
ject allocation of the council's 
budget and the remainder was 
taken from the Traffic Court 
proceeds from last year. 

The election of the college 
cheerleaders is again the re- 
sponsibility of the Student 

The guidelines for the 1970- 
71 cheerleader' elections were 
listed in the Student Council 
minutes for last week. 

This year, cheerleaders will 
be responsible for attending 
and leading cheers at all col- 
legiate' sports. 

Rather than aStudentCouncil 
committee being responsible 
for school spirit as in past 
years, the newly elected cheer- 
leader squad will take charge 
for the nrganLationof the cam- 
pus spirit. The cheerleaders 
will be active in organizing 
pep rallies and in the placing- 

chosen by 
Circle K 

The Milligan chapter of Cir- 
cle K international service club 
has chosen Miss Sandy Jones 
as '70-71 Sweetheart. 

Sandy will represent the club 
at the regional convention. 

Sandy's personality and her 
service to the school as night 
nurse were among the attributes 
contributing to her selection 
by the club members. 

The club will limit the fall 
pledge to upperclassmen. 
Freshmen will be given an op- 
portunity to join next spring. 

Many activities have been 
planned for the school year, 
on both the social and service 
levels. The most recent act- 
ivity was a faculty car wash 
rwo weeks ago to raise money. 

of posters on the campus. 

The Student Council - spon- 
sored Christian Emphasis 
Week, under the direction of 
Mr. Mark Cameron, Secre- 
tary of Religious Affairs, will 
take pl3ce October 6, through 

This week will be lead by 
a group from Pittsburg, Pen- 
sylvanla, called the Ex- 
kursions withaspecialspeaJcer, 
Mr. John Guest during the con- 
vocation hour, October 6. 

Currently, plans are being 
made to have members of the 
faculty and a dm in 1st ration con- 
duct small discussion groups 
in the dormitories, as was done 
last year. 

Three unanimous recom- 
mendations, from Council, have 
been forwarded to the staff of 
the library. 

These Include the following: 

First, the opening of the 
library on Saturday afternoons. 

Second, the opening of the 
library on Sunday evenings. 

if it is not feasible for the 
library staff to open the lib- 
rary on both Saturday mornings 
and afternoons, the third re- 
commendation is that the 
library be opened in the after- 
noons on Saturday rather than 
in the morning. 

The council is now awaiting 
the reply from the library staff 

concerning these recommenda- 

The members of Student 
Council are now in the pro- 
cess of attempting to improve 
the services of Coke machine 
sales and service as well as the 
facilities of coin operated tele- 
phones on the campus. 

The petltionclrculated in con- 
vocation on September 15 se- 
cured the signatures ol forty- 
six per cent of the student 
body. The required number, 
according to tbe current Stu- 
dent Council constitution, is 
forty per cent. 
This'was brought to the atten- 
tion of the Student Council 
Thursday night and the petition 
for amendment of the amend- 
ment clause of the constitution 
was tabled for one regularly 
scheduled meeting of the coun- 
cil. It will then be referred to 
the student body for passage. 

Passage of this amendment 
requires a vote of fifty per cent 
of the student body who parti- 
cipate in the voting. 

Time and place of election 
shall be announced at a later 

The total number of 33 stu- 
dent representatives and two 
faculty advisors to Student 
Council is now complete with 
the addition of thefreshmenand 
commuter representatives. 

Current construction will 
give campus new look 

New construction along the 
state highway which runs from 
in front of Webb Hall to the post 
office Includes a continuation 
of the sidewalk which now ends 
at the library parking area, 
a wider road, and a landscap- 
ing project. 

The sidewalk being completed 
to the post office has been much 

needed. Since the road through 
the campus is a state highway 
and not a private road, Milligan 
has faced a problem of area 
motorists sharing the same 
road with students on foot. 
This conflict will be resolved 
when the students are given 
their own passage way. 

Motorists will also benefit 
from a 30 inch width increase 
to the existent road. This will 
alleviate problems in passing 
oncoming vehicles. 

The removal of several cam- 
pus eyesores wiU be included 
in the highway construction 
All the buildings across from 
the Hospitality House have been 
removed not only so that the 
new sidewalk may go through 
but also so that the area can 
be landscaped for a more at- 
tractive campus.

This program is for stu- 
dents who graduated In the up- 
per quarter of their class but 
who had no hope of financing 
a college career. 

"It came about because 
there was a group of concern- 
ed teachers who saw an op- 
portunity to be of service," 
stated Dean Wetzel. 

Several of Mllllgan's pro- 
fessors have created classes 
for these students in Bible,

Dean Wetzel hopes to enlist 
financial ala from area busi- 
nessmen and foundatloms. 

If, after a trial run, the re- 
action from the businessmen, 
and students is favorable, 
the program will be expanded 
to Include more students, 
related Dean Wetzel. 

In conjunction with the stu- 
dents' arrival, several fresh- 
men and upperclassmen have 
volunteered to act as "big 
brothers and sisters" to the 
new freshmen. 

According to Jim Mounts, 
leader of the orientation pro-

new students make the trans- 
ition from high school to col-

Physical education 
requirement dropped 

Lancaster, Pa. - (l.P.) — 
Franklin and Marshall College 
no longer will require stud- 
ents to take physical educa- 
tion courses as a requirement 
for the Bachelor of Arts de- 
gree. The degree requirement 
was voted out by the College 
Senate, based upon a recom- 
mendation of the Senate's Cur- 
riculum Committee. 

In its report, theCurrlculum 
Committee stated that "the ob- 
jectives of physical education, 
while good and estimable, are 
not sufficiently central to Che 
essential purposes of liberal 
education to justify their re- 
tention as a graduation re- 

The Committee urged "fur- 
ther development of attractive 
opportunities" for physical ed- 
ucation and "the encourage-

Dr. Tsao, John Rohrbaugh 
attend national conference 

Representing Mllllgan Col- 
■ lege at the second annual pre- 
sident to the president's con- 
ference last week In Washington 
D, C. were John Rohrbaugh, 
| president of the Student Coun- 
: ell, and Wen Yen Tsao, chair- 
i man of Eastern Asian Studies. 
The participants In thiscon- 
; ference, which lastedf rora Sep- 
tember 25-27 were mostly 
I student government leaders and 

presidents from various uni- . 
. verslties and colleges through- 
out the United States. 

Several members of the 
Nixon cabinet were listed as 
i feature speakers Including the 
following people: Secretary of 
Defense, Melvin Laird; Secre- 
! tary of Interior, WalterJ. Hick- 
el; United States Attorney 
General, John Mitchell, and 
Director of Selective Service, 
Dr. Curtis W. Tarr. 

John Rohrbaugh felt the 
program and Its speakers very 
worthwhile. Johnremarkedthat 
he had supported President 
Nixon in his 1968 presidential ■ 
campaign. However, he had ■' 
lately acquired misgivings to- 
ward the Nixon administration 
because of Its "Southern Stra- 
tegy" attitude towards civil 
rights and education. Its atti- 
tude toward campus unrest, 
and Its attitude toward the con- 
duction of the Viet Nam War. 
Now, after hearing the spee- 
ches of Laird, Hlckel, and Mit- 
chell, John is more optimistic 
concerning the quality of tbe 
Nixon administration. 

Concerning the featured 
speakers John stated. The 
men were keenly Intelligent, 
articulate, and concerned." 
However, It Is surprising to 
discover that Melvin Laird has 
only a bachelors degree and 
that Walter J. Hlckel has yet 
to receive his bachelor's de- 

According to John, one of 
the more impressive speakers 
was attorney General John Mit- 
chell. During the question and 
swer period Mitchell did not 
avoid the questionsandhecame 
to direct terms with a basical- 
ly hostile audience. Mitchell 
was impressive enough to re- 
ceive all but a standing ova- 
tion from the audience. 

During the same question- 
answer period Mitchell said 
dissent is permissible "where 
you do not infringe upon the 
rights of others." 

Secretary of the Interior, 
Walter J. Hlckel, In what many 
believe to be a slap at Vice 
President Splro Agnew, com- 
mented that he rejects the 
"rhetoric of polarization." He 
later added, "as hard as we . 
try, we cannot tear our na- 
tion together." 


608 W.Wolnst St. 
Jofcnsoi City 

Hlckel, who in a now fam- 
ous letter urged President 
Nixon to listen to student dis- 
sent during* last spring's 
anti-war turmoil on the na- 
tion's campuses, did not men- 
tion the Vice President by 

Over all, John felt the most 
Impressive speaker to be Dr. 
Curtis W. Tarr, who was ap- 
pointed Director of Selective 
Service in mid 1969. Prior 
to his appointment, Tarr had 
served as President of Laur- 
ence University for six years. 
Tarr received his bachelor of 
arts degree from Stanford 
University, his masters from 
Harvard University, and his 
doctorate from Stanford Uni- 

Commenting on Tarr "s 
speech, John felt it was im- 
pressive because, "Tarr 
seemed to be more at ease 
and familiar with the pre- 
judices of the students andpre- 
sldents representing the ed- 
ucational Institutions." 

"He could sympathize with 
the collegiate Idealism which 
demands an end to United 
States militancy and the draft, 
while still pointing out tbe 
necessity of a realistic ap- 
proach to the brutalities of 
world politics," John added. 

In his speech, Tarr spoke 
of his hope to end the draft 
in 1972, and to unify tbe local 
draft boards throughout the na- 
tion by the use of data pro- 

new members 
are initiated 

Pbi-Eta-Tau Sorority met 
recently for the formal ini- 
tiation of new members and 
to plan future activities. 

As a part of the initiation 
ceremony, all old and pros- 
pective members lit their in- 
dividual candles from a single 
candle as a unifying gesture. 
The women then recited the 
sorority pledge. 

The latest activity for this 
sorority of physical education 
majors and minors was a 
camping trip at Linvilie Gorge, 
October 2, 3, and 4. 

Unlike last year, neither 
President Nixon n or Vice Pre- 
sident Agnew made an ap- 
pearance at the conference of 
college and university student 
leaders and presidents. 

During this same weekend 
tbe President's Commlslon on 
Campus Unrest, popularly 
called the Scranton Report sub- 
mitted its recommendations 
stating, "We recommend that 
the President lend his per- 
sonal support and assistance 
to American universities to 
accomplish the changes and 
reforms suggested in this 

'"We recommend that the 
President call a series of na- 
tional meetings, designed to 
foster understanding among 
those who are now divided. He 
should meet with . . . univer- 
sity leaders . . . and with stud- 
ent leaders. " 

THE BEAR STORY— The stray bear that has been terror- 
izing people around campus lately Is the property of Scott 
McClaren, Larry Flynn, and John Kraft. This all-purpose 
bear has been found to be useful as a hood ornament 3S well 
as to scare even such people as Bob Wells. Whether or not 
this Is of any bearing on die caption, John Is the brother-ln 
law o f Coach Worrell.'

Ratified amendment will 
change amendment clause 

The twenty-seven student re- 
presentees on Student Council 
continue to strive for improve- 
ments in the Mllllgan College 

The amendment to the 
amendment clause of the Stu- 
dent Council constitution was 
passed last week and was re- 
ferred to the student body this 
week for endorsement. 

The required support of the 
student body was obtained and 
the revising of thecurrent con- 
stitution has now been referred 
to a committee of the council. 

This committee consists 
of John Rohrbaugh, Jim Mounts, 
Pam Stephens, Chuck Hilborn, 
Cindy Davis, and Ed Barker. 

This committee will be in- 
vestigating other constitutions 
of college student councils and 
will make their recommenda- 
tions to tbe Mllllgan council 
for their consideration. 

At the meeting of the council 
last week, money was allocated 
for the purchase of three new 
eight-track tapes for the sy- 
stem In the cafeteria. 

The Concert Committee has 
guaranteed council $1500 for a 
Spring Popular Concert. Any 
suggestions from interested 

students should be directed to 
the student representatives on 
the Concert Committee, Jan 
Mclntyre or Steve Knowles. 

The recent ruling on the 
motorcycle parking and re- 
gulations from the Dean of 
Men's office has been refer- 
red to tbe council for their 
endorsement and was passed, 
but only on a temporary basis. 

A special committee from 
student council has been ap- 
pointed to investigate this 
matter, then to report directly 
to the council. 

Recent committee appoint- 
ments include Mark Webb 
and Bill Howden to the Publica- 
tions Committee. 

Bachman, her husband, who Is 
an instructor of voice and di- 
rector of Concert Choir, Mrs. 
Bachman presented a well- 
rounded program In four 

The first section consisted 
of an Italian song cycle, LA 
Rossini, which depicts a Ve- 
netian gondola race. AN DIE 
Beethoven's song cycle, "To 
the Distant Beloved," com- 
prised th& second section. 

Followinga brief intermis- 
sion, Mrs. Bachman presented 
the aria "Ebben, ne andro 
lontana" from the opera LA 
WALLY by Catalani and the 
more contemporary "Trols 
Melodies" by Olivier Messlaen 
a modern French composer. 
The final section, sung in Eng- 
lish, consisted of five shorter 
contemporary songs. 

In addition to her duties at 
Milllgan College, and her role 
as wife and mother of two 
children, Mrs. Bachman Is also 
a voice Instructor at Emory 
and Henry College, Emory, 
Virginia, and directs a 
Junior Choir at First Chris- 
tian Church, Johnson City.

Emphasizing Unity in Contrast 

While experiencing a few days called Christian Emphasis 
Week, our thought has been focused on the queston, "What 
is a Christian?" Each person's answer to this Inquiry will be 
somewhat unique, for each person has his own Individual con- 
ception of Christianity and his own way of demonstrating his 
faith. At the same time, most people expect Christians to act 
In a certain stereotyped way. Christianity, however, is not merely 
an overt pattern of behavior; it is a way of life. A Christian, 
if he Is a true Chrlsrlan, Is a Christian every moment of each 
day, not merely on Sunday mornings. His Christianity Is not a 
thing which he consciously acts out; It is an integral part of 
him. It Is evident in his dally contacts with DeoDle. 

Although there are certain qualities which one must possess in. 
order to be a Christian, there Is definitely room for Individ- 
uality. Christ left man free to seek and to respond to Him in 
a variety of ways. No man can say that his way of life is the 
only Christian way. Even If one feels that his approach is right, 
it Is perhaps helpful for him to come In contact with Chris- 
tianity displayed in a manner unlike that to which it is ac- 

One might wonder why there should be a need for a Chris- 
tian Emphasis Week at a Christian liberal arts college. Per- 
haps the value of this week has been to Illustrate the truth that 
active Christian faltb can be reflected in various manners. Per- 
haps it has served as a reminder that this faith must be demon- 
strated in our day-to-day relationship with other people and 
with ourselves. 

Porch Problem in Proportion 

Some discussion has arisen recently among Milligan students 
concerning conduct of couples In dormitory lobbies, on the porches, 
and at the other popular places on campus. Obviously, this topic 
is of some Importance to a large portion of our student body. 
No organized movement has developed, however, to investigate 
possible problems and to propose solutions or changes In policy. 
Perhaps there exists no problem serious enough to be handled 
In this way. Student behavior cannot andshouldnot be legalistically 

This is not to deny that problems do exist In the realm of public 
conduce of some dating couples. To be realistic we must recognize 
that such situations are common — that Milligan is not a bad excep- 

The porch or lobby scene during the half hour or so preceedlng 
curfew, with people stationed In pairs throughout, may create 
an awkward and uncomfonable situation for some (and may even 
make it difficult to make one's way to the door|),A little honest 
thought should expose the nature of these problems derived from 
the lnconslderation and thoughtlessness of a relatively small 
number of people. 

To ban all display of affection would be unnatural and unwise. 
Even to place definite regulations on conduct would be silly, un- 
reasonable, and unneccesary for college students who are cap- 
able of responsible behavior. 

Personal conduct must be Individually regulated. It does not 
seem unreasonable, however, to expect some thoughtful consider- 
ation and respect of others In determlng one's public behavior. 

The Sense of B.O. 

Bill Oates 

It's a gorgeous fall day.* The 
Tennessee skies are spotted 
with a few fluffy white clouds. 
You are fighting to keep awake 
In a Friday afternoon class. 

"Don't it make you wanna 
go home?" 

Yes, It's nearlng that time 
when we all decide when and 
where we are going this fall 
break. The choices are often 
hard and varied. 

One simple solution to the 
question, "Where should I go 
over fall break7, " could be 
answered by merely staying 

I strongly discourage this 
idea. If your excuse for re- 
maining would be so that you 
may study, I suggest you go 
somewhere else. 

You can not use the excuse 
that you can not afford to go 
anywhere, because, even in a 
country plagued with in- 
flation, you can travel cheaply, 
if you explore the possibili- 

Student rates, camping out, 
staying with friends, visiting 
a forgotten relative, hitch 
hiking, or any one of a dozen 

New concept 
of graduate 
work tried 

Ann Arbor, Mich. — (I.P.) 
— The University of Michigan 
is receiving $2 million from the 
Ford Foundation to help estab- 
lish a graduate student program 
unique to public universities. 

The Michigan Society of Fel- 
lows, which the grant under- 
writes, is modeled on the Har- 
vard Society of Fellows, creat- 
ed In 1933. Harvard's program 
has produced two Nobel and five 
Pulitzer prizes and a distin- 
guished list of scholars and pub- 
lic leaders. 

The Michigan plan calls for 
18 to 30 junior fellows, even- 
tually, selected by a group of 
nine to 12 senior fellows drawn 
from the U-M faculty. The jun- 
ior fellows will be graduate stu- 
dents who have completed one to 
three years of graduate work. 
They will receive fellowships of 
three years, providing up to$9,- 
500 a. year in direct assistance. 

"Once admitted to the 
Society," said U-M vice pre- 
sident and graduate school dean, 
Stephen H. Spurr, "no limita- 
tions will be placed on the 
course of their studies. They 
will have complete freedom to 
follow their chosen paths, to at- 
tend whatever classes they de- 
sire, to take or not to take a 
Ph.D., to be close to senior 
fellows without in any sense 
being supervised by them." 

The only obligation upon the 
Junior fellows is to meet with 
the senior fellows once a week 
for dinner. 

"For a public university, this 
is a pioneering venture," said 
President Robben W. Fleming. 
"We are grateful for not only 
the financial support but also 
the recognition the Ford 
Foundation has given Michi- 

methods of inexpensive travel 
are attainable. 

I appreciate this school very 
much, but I led that from the 
top of the administration on 
down the line, everyone would 
encourage you to take full ad- 
vantage of all the breaks. It's 
a good rest for our minds. 

Some choices of places that 
you might go, would Include 
your very own home, a Mil- 
ligan boy or girlfriend's home, 
a non -Milligan boy or girl 
friend's home, a relative's 
place, someplace you have al- 
ways wanted to go, or Just a 
spot where you can loosen up 
for a few days. 

Your parents would probab- 
ly be^ glad to see you. Other 
than watching you raid the re- 
frigerator forfourorfivedays, 
they might be Interested In 
what is happening at that place 
where they sendchecks toevery 
so often. They are probably 
curious as to why you never 
write, except in time of fin- 
ancial need. If they are not 
happy to have you home at 
fall break, you have a pro- 

Visiting a Milligan guy or 
girl friend over a break can be 
fun. I have tried it and have 
been surprised to find that 
Milligan kids come from some 
pretty nice homes. 

Renewing old friendships can 
also be enjoyable. Progress or 
gossip reports can be exchanged 
between comments on change 
ol political opinion, hair-do, 
or new fall fashions. This cat- 
egory also includes seeing one's 
fiancee for the first time in 
what has seemed like a century. 

Seeing a relative could be 
fun. If you have some liberal- 
minded member of yourfamlly, 
who will let you get away with 
nearly anything. 

Among the vehicles leaving 
the greater east Tennessee are 
cars, one train per day. Con- 
tinental Trailways, the air- 
lines, and piedmont. The later 

belongs as a mode of Its own. 

My main concern. Is that 
we all take advantage of our 
breaks. 1 am sure that I do 
not have to convince many 
people of this, but 1 feel that 
these short vacations have been 
designed so that we will return 
to Milligan refreshedand ready 
to start another run of classes. 

Now that 1 have you all 
fired up about going somewhere, 
you will need something to keep 
you busy and your mind free of 
the wild desires for leaving. 

Well, here is my list of 
busy items to do, that I com- 
piled while working as a traf- 
fic flagman on Interstate 90 
In South Dakota last summer; 

1) Try to make your foot 
fall asleep. 

2) Try to guess how long a 
minute is. 

3) Try to guess how long 
ten minutes are. 

4) Try to guess how long an 
hour is. 

5) Watch television with the 
sound turned off and try to 
read the lips. 

6) Write poetry, songs, or 

7} Try to acquire a pair 
of buffalo. 

8) Take your car com- 
pletely apart and assemble it 
in your room. 

9) Correct last week's Stud- 
ent Council minutes. 

10) Write your Congressman. 

11) Write to someone you 
have not written In a longtime 

12) Read some old letters. 

13) Build a zeppelin out of 

14) Read a favorite passage 
from the Bible. 

15) Read something you have 
never read from the Bible be- 

16) Practice on Scrabble so 
that you can beat the person 
who always beats you. 

17) Exercise. 

18) Study. 

19) Check again on how long 
it is until break time.

Human Q 


Pollution ; \ 

Melvin Morton and Steve Knowles 

The prime model of modern Jurisprudence, the MUligan dis- 
ciplinary system, went Into action last week to promptly and 
efficiently put an end to one of our most serious disciplinary pro- 
blems. Following a conference with the Dean of Men, the offend- 
ing sociopaths have promised they will never again throw napkins 
in the cafeteria. 

Early last week MUligan girls were called Into dorm meetings, 
where they were informed of a new not -really-a -rule requesting 
that they not make out anywhere on campus where they are likely 
to be seen. About the only place on campus that fits that descrip- 
tion is the library's Unbound (and uncharted) Periodical Section. 
No one Is likely to disturb you there — but If you get lost, no search 
party is likely to find you, either. 

Speaking of the Unbound Periodical Section, reports that It har- 
bors a thirty-foot boa constrictor are probably untrue. However, 
cafeteria workers have found a couple of young copperheads behind 
Sutton Hall. And ad hoc faculty-student committee recommend- 
ed that the Johnson family be asked to pick up a pair of mongooses 
on their world tour, to serve as the nucleus of a Milligan Snake 
Patrol. However, the proposal was vetoed by Business' Manager 
B. J, Moore because the school Just couldn't afford it, "Do you 
have any ideas how much It costs to keep two mongooses per 
year?" he asked. 

Don't worry about the snakes, though. The Senior Class Is still 
looking for two buffalo to donate to the school, to serve as the nucleus 
of a MUligan Buffalo Herd. Buffalo don't like snakes, and our 
buffalo expert, Dr. Lindeman, reports that they have a way of get- 
ting rid of anything they don't like. 

Unfortunately, he also reports that buffalo don't like people. 

An unconfirmed report claims that Ouijl boards are now banned 
from our campus. However, the rumor that Jeanne Dixon is suing 
the school is definitely untrue. 

Honoring worthy seniors can be rough; the faculty report- 
edly deliberated for quite awhile before finding ten seniors 
to name to "Who's That ? In American Colleges and Universit- 

I'd like to commend whoever thought of the new "Big Brother" 
program of financial aid; I think it's great. I mention this only 
to reassure those people who think that I haven't been able to find 
anything 1 like at MUligan. There has to be some reason why I keep 
coming back (I get along fine with my parents and my lottery num- 
ber is 360). 

In the MUligan corporate Jungle, the Student Council's monopoly 
of the Freshman Basketball Team received a serious threat last 
week when the Senior Class purchased a $100 interest in theteam. 
I'm pulling for the Seniors — there are already rumors that Rohr- 
baugh was going to supplement the Student Council treasury by fixing 
the games.

At Susquehanna University 

Students act in community 

Selinsgrove, pa. (I.P.) — 
Susquehanna University has 
been awarded a grant of $7,50fl 
to conduct a three-year study 
of volunteer social programs 
conducted by itsstudentsln the 
surrounding community. 

The grant was provided by 
the Board of College Educa- 
tion andChurch Vocations of the 
Lutheran Church in America. 
During the course of an acade- 
mic year, some 275 to 300 
students from the university 
donated several thousands 
hours of their time to such 
volunteer programs as tutor- 
ing retarded chUdren and con- 
ducting day care centers for 
the children of migrant farm 

Interest in these programs 
have grown rapidly in the past 
few years and university of- 
ficials believe it is time for 
an evaluation. Charles J. lgoe, 
assistant professorof education 
and co-ordinaior of the volun- 
teer efforts, said the evalua- 
tion should provide answers 
to some of the following ques- 

How effective are these pro- 
grams? Are they providing an 
educational experience for the 
students that are involved? 
What kinds of students are most 
likely to participate? Has there 
been any effect on the grades 
of the students and their 
"classroom vitality"? Could 
academic credit be granted for 
some of the volunteer work! 
What other programs could be 

Reports wUl be prepared on 
each program and made avaU- 
able to other colleges and uni- 
versities, private and govern- 
mental agencies which might 
be Interested. There are about 
30 other Lutheran colleges in 
the country and It Is hoped 
that some of them will want 
to start simUar programs. 

Speaking at a meeting of 
Susquehanna's 55-niember Ad- 
visory CouncU. lgoe discussed 
the demand of students for 
"relevancy" in education. He 
remarked: "What today's stu- 
dent wants--rlght now — is aca- 
demic relevancy through some 
form of personal involvement. 

It seems to be an ever grow- 
ing and primary concern of 
today's undergraduate that, no 
matter how small a part he 
might play In such a develop- 
ment, he wants the personal 
satisfaction of knowing that be 
personally is doing something 
to make the world Just a little 

lgoe also feels that Susque- 
hanna's experience in volunteer 
programs wUl be of use to a 
number of other colleges be- 
cause Susquehanna Is in a pre- 

dominantly rural area and is at- 
tempting to serve its needs. 
More than half of the col- 
leges and universities in the 
country are located In rural 
settings and many of their stu- 
dents "feel left out and away 
from the action," lgoe noted. 
Although a great deal has 
been said and written about the 
Uls of urban America, many 
of the same problems of so- 
cial and economic depriva- 
tion are also prevalent in rural 
districts, he added.

Recently I have received a 
number of inquiries concern- 
ing MUligan College policies 
regulating correspondence 

courses and the readmisslonof 
students who have been dropped 
for either academic or social 
discipline. In the absence of 
such policy statements from 
the current Bulletin, allow me 
to use this opportunity to put 
them in print: 


1. MUligan students want- 
ing to take correspondence 
courses must secure the per- 
mission of the Academic Dean 
prior to enroUing In the course. 

2. Correspondence course 
hours must be counted with 
regular course hours in de- 
termining a "full load." 

3. No more than 6 semes- 
ter hours of correspondence 
work are recommended and 
no more than 12 semester 

hours wUl be accepted to- 
ward MUligan degree require- 


1. The student is required 
to write a letter requesting 
readmisslon to the Academic 
Dean as chairman of the Ad- 
missions Committee. 

2. The Admissions Com- 
mittee wUl examine his origin- 
al records In the light of the 
work which led to his sus- 

3. If there is reason to be- 
lieve that the student would 
profit from another opportun- 
ity to do college work, he will 
be permitted to enroll with 
probationary status following 
the one semester of suspen- 

4. In the event that it Is 
necessarV to suspend the stu- 
dent a second time he wUl 
not be eligible to apply for

Recommendations are made 
at All-College Conference 

New pall,:, N. Y. — (LP.) 
-- The following recommenda- 
tions are encompassed In a 
report on the All-College Con- 
ference, New paltz Siate Col- 
lege, 1970: 

Recommendations on Acade- 
mic Standards: 

1. A pass-fall system should 
be Instituted on an optional 
basis for all courses except 
those in the student's major. 

2. In the student's major 
courses, there should be writ- 
ten evaluation of his perfor- 
mance In addition to his grades. 
Both the letter grade and the 
written evaluation should be 
pan of the student's record. 

3. A system of academic 
advising should be imple- 
mented to Inform and advise 
students about the academic 
programs at the College. Spe- 
cifically, a Freshman Orienta- 
tion and Counselling Period 
should be established prior to 
the beginning of each academic 
year. At this time each stu- 
dent should be assigned a fa- 
culty advisor from the stu- 
dent's major department if that 
Is possible, who will work 
closely with his student ad- 
visees on a one-to-one basis. 

Whenever possible, the student 
should be allowed to choose 
his advisor. The student should 
have the right to change his 
advisor without prejudice. 

4. Class attendance should 

not be compulsory; students 
should not be penalized sole- 
ly for their failure to attend 

5. The goals of a course 
should be clearly discussed 
by the Instructor and students 
In the first meetings of the 
course and should be re-eval- 
uated at the end of the course. 

6. Since conprehensive final 
exams are not always found 
fitting to evaluate courses, 
their use should be specifical- 
ly justified. 

7. Where final exams art- 
utilized, their weight should 
not exceed the weight of other 
exams or evaluations that oc- 
cur during the semester, 

8. Wherever possible en- 
tering students should be given 
proficiency examinations thai 
will, If passed, allow them to 
bypass subjects which they 
have already mastered. This 
approach will not provide for 
course credit. 

Recommendations on Course 


1 1. Everycourseandevery 
section of every course should 
be identified by teacher and by a 
statement containing the spe- 
cific interests o( the teachers 
in question outside and beyond 
the conventional catalog de- 

2. Where possible the stu- 
dents should have a voice in 

'Once Upon a Mattress' 
to be presented by choir 

During the Founder's Day 
weekend, the Milligan College 
Concert Choir will be present- 
ing "Once Upon a Mattress", 
a musical comedy, on Novem- 
ber 28. 

The musical Is one which 
was presented on Broadway 
starring Carol Burnett. It Is 
a fairy tale set in fifteenth 
century Europe, telling the 
story of a prince seeking a 
princess to marry him. 

There are complications, 
such as a dominating Queen, 
a mute King, and a court which 

is having problems of its own. 

The majors parts will be 
played by: Jim Sluyter, Linda 
Hayden, Dale Krantz, Chuck 
Harper, Jim Byerly, Mike 
Woods, James Gregory, Steve 
Knowles, and Sally Schield. 
Rocky Laha will be directing 
the musical. 

An orchestra directed by 
Sherwyn Bachman has been 
added to Concert Choir this 
year to play for the musical. 
This Is the first lime a com- 
plete orchestra has been used 
in a musical at Milligan. 

the content of a course. 

11 Recommendation 

1. Science courses should 
be made available on a lab 
and non-lab basis for majors 
and non-majors respectively 
with provisions for proper 
assessment of credit, 

2. After careful examina- 
tion which should eliminate 
duplication, General Studies 
courses should be listed under 
the various disciplines with a 
delineation of iheir relative ap- 
propriateness for major and 
non-majors. When interdis- 
ciplinary, they should be listed 
as such, 

3. A rea Studies courses cov- 
ering areas too vast for cover- 
age in depth, should be sub- 
divided into more specific 
areas or disciplines. 

4. The various disciplines 
should create Omnibus courses 
in order to encourage par- 
ticular teachers and students 
to create a course's generic 
to iheir special interests. 

5. A School of Experimental 
Studies should be established 
in order to allow teachers and 
students to try out new dis- 
ciplinary and interdisciplinary 
courses outside of the normal 
college procedures. 

6. Lecture courses should 
be discouraged and seminars 
should be encouraged. 

7. Computerl, ed courses 
should be considered when they 
might actually free teachers 
and students for more exciting 

8. Courses should be init- 
ialed which would give ap- 
propriate credit for non-acad- 
emic experience and travel. 

9. The compulsory physical 
education requirements for 
graduation be dropped. 

Recommendations on New 
Academic Programs. 

1. That when at least ten 
students and one faculty mem- 
ber Indicate an interest in a 
course not offered, they be al- 
lowed to institute thai course. 

2. Each department should 
leave a * time slot open for a 
possible course which could 
be suggested by students or 
faculty at the beginning of each

Ceremonies were held in 
Seeger Memorial Chapel on 
Thursday, November 5, to in- 
augurate Dr. Fred P. Thomp- 
son, Jr. to the presidency of 
Emmanual School of Religion. 

The service of inauguration 
was witnessed by students, fa- 
culty, and friends of the school 
as well as representatives from 
forty-four learned societies 
and schools of higher educa- 
tion. Dr. Delno W. Brown, dean 
of Emmanuel School of Re- 
ligion, presided. 

The main speaker of the 
morning was Dr. William Ban- 
owsky, chancellor of Pepper- 
dine College, Los Angeles, 

In his address, Dr. Banow_sky 
decried the growing trend of 
mankind to disregard the les- 
sons of history as being im- 
portant In today'stechnological 
age. In his opinion we face a 
1 'cult of contemporaneity." 
"The lest of validity is re- 
levence." People no longer 
think in long term effects or 
historical precedence. The 
"now" Is everything. Dr. Ban- 
owsky described the situation 
as follows: 

"We are now in danger of 
becoming a cut-flower civili- 
zation. Beautiful as cut-ilow- 
ers may be, much as we use 
our ingenuity to keep them look- 
ing fresh for a while, they have 
already begun to wither and 
must . . . die; and they die 
because they are severed from 
their sustaining roots . . . Our 
progress In the future will de- 
pend, in part, upon a re- 
spectful regard for the les- 
sons of the past." 

From tne inauguration, the 
participants and guests pro- 
ceeded to Sutton Hall for a 
luncheon. Here, a buffet was 
served and greetings were re- 
ceived from schools and per- 
sons noi represented, from 
Mrs. B. D. Phillips, f i om Dr. 
Jess W. Johnson on behalf of 
Milllgan College, and from the 
area i hurches. Those in at- 
te: -ance were notified lhatihey 
would be the guests of M'-igan 
College at a presentation by 
the National Ballet Company 
that evening in Seeger Chapel. 
The luncheon was followed by

Miss Anne Taylor, a Junior 
music major, has been ap- 
pointed Secretary of Academic 
Affairs by John Rohrbaugh, 
president of Student Council. 
The purpose of Anne's of- 
fice is to serve as a path of

mic Dean C. Robert Wetzel, 
and the Student Council. How- 
ever, Anne is responsible to 
John Rohrbaugh, not the Coun- 

Anne is to Improve the 
student awareness of academic 
affairs, and to help students 
Improve academic affairs. 

At the present time, Anne 
is trying to develop a group 
of students to work with her.

Rule changes announced 
after dorm councils meet 

Two changes in women's 
rules took effect Thursday, 
November 5, 1970. 

With the approval of Pres- 
ident Jess Johnson, Dean of 
Women Mary Young, and the 
joint dorm councils of Han 
and Sutton Halls, women's cur- 
few was extended one-half 
hour on week nights, and slacks 
for women were added to the 
list of suitable attire accord- 
ing to the MilliganCollegedress 

Until the proposal met ap- 
proval, accepted classroom, 
town, dormitory lobby, and 
basketball game attire for wo- 
men was restricted to dresses, 
skirts and blouses, and dress 
length pant dresses. 

Violation of the former rul- 
ing was punishable on a scale 
of graduated demerits. (One de- 
merit for the first offense, two 
demerits for the second, etc.) 

With the approval of the new 
rule, three-piece pant suits, 
pant suits with tunic tops, and 
appropriate (not mutilated) 
dress pants are now deemed 
appropriate dress "because of 
the change In styles concern- 
ing dress for women. . . " 

In addition, the hours for 
dormitory closing, Sunday 

through Thursday nights were 
extended to I1;00 p.m. 
The Initial proposals were 

presented by the administration 
to a closed meeting of the Joint 
dorm councils, November 2 and 
3. The new ruling, resulting 
from this meeting, as approved 
by the council, was officially 
handed down to the Milligan 
women at section dormitory

Madrigals : 
Old England 
at Milligan 

The fourth annual Milligan 
College Madrigal Dinners will 
be held at 7:30 p.m. in Sutton 
Dining Hall on the evenings of 
December 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 
and 11. 

Plans are being made to 
take the Madrigal Dinner, sing- 
ers and cast, to Elm Court, 
Butler, Pennsylvania, where 
Mrs. B. D. Phillips will be 
hostess for the first off-cam- 
pus Milligan College Madrigal 

to evaluate. 

The evaluations are sched- 
uled for the first week of De- 
cember, and promise to be 
much more helpful than last 
year's. When used correct- 
ly, they can be beneficial to 
students and faculty alike. 

PattI Derrickson and Ernie 
Hertzog are working with Anne 
concerning a change In the 
Dean's List requirements. At 
present the number of A's and 
B's are the criterion. They 
hope to change It to a grade 
point system. 

The library and recruitment 
and admissions requirements 
will come under review of 
Anne's committee. Other areas 
of academic change that were 
Indicated as essential bySouth- 
ern Accrediting Association 
will also be considered. 

ANOTHER SECRETARY — But Mark Cameron and Steve Knowles 
don't mind a bit sharing their office with the new Secretary of 
Academic Affairs, Anne Taylor.

teacher shortages still exist 

Board -Students Meeting? 

Mllligan students may often regard the meeting of the Board of 
Advisors and Trustees as a mysterious and rather fearful time dur- 
ing which they are under critical scrutiny for proper dress and be- 
havior. The formal and official meetings may suggest to some students 
that they are about to be subjected to domination from above. We 
hope that the students will be given by the board members no sub- 
stantial reason to hold such opinions, and we encourage a new open- 
ness in communication between the boards and the Mllligan student 

The addition to the Board of Advisors of a Mllligan alumnus from 
the class of 1970 is an encouraging step toward Increased under- 
standing. Perhaps one day a student and a faculty representative 
will be included on the Board of Trustees as well as on the Board 
of Advisors. We encourage now that the students be willing to ex- 
press their honest concerns to board members and that the boards 
try to allow time and opportunity for such communication. 

It is understandable that not all Issues dealt with by the boards 
can be made public and also that some considerations may not be 
significant or appropriate for solicitation of student opinion. How- 
ever, on issues which directly involve and affect the students of 
Mllligan, consultation with the students should be sought by the 

We hope that the boards are aware of the active concern for the 
college which has been displayed this year through Student Council 
and other student groups as well as by responsible individuals. 
It seems only right that a college existing for the benefit of Its stu- 
dents be directed with a current understanding of the concerns, 
needs, and ideas of an Increasingly conscientious, well-informed 
and capable student body. We feel that It would be beneficial for 
the board members to openly and honestly listen to the thoughts 
of the students not only on Issues with which they will be dealing 
but also toward an appreciation oi the prevalent attitudes and am- 
bitions of our students. 

The STAMPEDE wishes to welcome the board members to Mll- 
ligan College and hopes that some of our academic, social, and 
spiritual strengths as well as our weaknesses, problems, and 
concerns for change will be made evident. 






1 have followed with great Interest the running debate in the 
STAMPEDE regarding the purchase of a mascot buffalo herd as 
a senior class project. 1 would like to express my opinion. 

Long ago, my father said to me, "Son, the important thing in 
life Is to be right, if you are right, disregard what others may 
say. Hold to the line, and let the chips fall where they may." 

I've found that to be sound advice. 

1 am aware that many will say that buffaloes are too hard to 
care for, too dirty, etc. Even those favoring the Idea will say, 
"Who's going to clean up after these buffaloes? — not mel" 

But 1 say the idea is goodl The idea is right | 

Therefore, we seniors should get the buffaloes and bring them 
to the campus and let the chips fall where they may.

The Superflsh r — 

Although many school dis- 
tricts have more applicants 
than teaching openings, many 
are still unable to fill all po- 
sitions by the beginning of the 
school year, according to a 
survey conducted by tbe As- 
sociation for School, College, 
and University Staffing. 

In the ASCUS survey, which 
is not yet complete, 116 school 
districts reported an overall 
surplus of applicants, yet 48 
of these schools had positions 
open as of September 15. 

ASCUS Executive Secretary 
Warren j. McClain said the 
study Indicated an over supply 
of teachers in social studies, 
languages, boys' P. E., and dri- 
ver education, buta "real scar- 
city" in the fields of music, 
industrial arts, special educa- 
tion, -girls P.E., speech ther- 
apy, math, and the sciences. 

The STAMPEDE surveyed 
four school districts which re- 
cruit at Mllligan: Harford 
County (Bel Air, Md.), Cobb 
County (Marietta, Ga.), Char- 
les County (La Plata, Md.) 
and Duval County (Jacksonville, 

- In Harford County, which 
has employed Mllligan gradu- 
ates for the last ten years, 
shortages exist in the areas 
oi math, pcience, foreign lan- 
guage, geography, and library 
science, according to director 
of personnel C. Clark Jones. 

Jones termed "critical" the 
shortage of special education 
teachers In Harford County. 
especially teachers of the 
mentally retarded, the men- 
tally handicapped, and child- 

Grades are 
at Kansas U. 

Lawrence, Kans. - (LP.) - 

The University of Kansas will 
no longer automatically notify 
parents of student's grades. 
The policy switch is due to the 
new code of student rights, 
responsibilities and conduct. 

Dean William Balfour said 
that grades will be sent to 
parents only at the request 
of students. It had been the 
policy at KU to automatically 
report grades of single stu- 
dents under 21 years of age 
to their parents or guardians. 

Dean Balfour said it might 
be possible for students to in- 
dicate if they wanted their 
grades to be reported at re- 
gistration and enrollment. 

The grade policies are but 
one pan of a section on con- 
fidentiality of records which 
affects procedures in the re- 
gistrar's office. 

Essentially, the section de- 
scribes a confidential relation- 
ship between the student and 
university, and lists records 
which are kept and to whom 
the information may be given. 

ren with specific learning dis- 

Cobb County reports critical 
shortages in industrial arts, 
math, and science. However, 
openings exist even in the 
most crowded areas of social 
studies and English. 

"There is very seldom a 
time when thja school system 
does not have an opening for 
a qualified teacher," accord- 
ing to Assistant Superintend- 
ent for personnel Clinton J. 

Charles County reports a 
" 'dire need' ' for teachers in 
the fields of special education, 
math, library science, and the 
natural sciences. 

The areas of math, science, 
and industrial arts are consid- 
ered critical in Duval County, 
although all science and math 

positions were staffed by the 
first day of school. 

However, Duval employs a 
large number of wives of navy 
personnel, and consequently 
there Is a turnover each Jan- 
uary due to transfer of the 
teachers' husbands. 

Tbe current teacher supply 
is best up by Jones of 
Harford County, who said, "ex- 
cept for history and boys' phy- 
sical education, I do not believe 
it is proper to say there is a 
surplus of teachers. 

"It Is better to say that in 
some fields, after more than 
three decades of drastic short- 
age, there are now enough 
teachers to make it possible 
for school systems to have a 
choice among the people who 
they select to work in thelr 

Dean C. Robert Wetzel 




The following Item from an issue of The Knoxville Journal 
recently caught my attention: 

The University of Tennessee College of Liberal Arts will 
offer for the first time a course treating the culture and civil- 
ization of a major Asian Nation, the school announced Friday. 

The three Asian Studies Courses will lead to a certificate 
in Asian Studies for which the student will major in an estab- 
lished discipline In the College of Liberal Arts. 

Congratulations are certainly in order to the University of 
Tennessee as it recognizes a tragically neglected area of study 
for the American student. At the same rime, this Innovation 
at U.T. calls attention to the fine Asian Studies program con- 
ducted by Dr. Wen Yen Tsao here at Mllligan. The program 
was initiated In 1967 when Dr. Tsao joined the Milligan faculty. 
In addition to two years of language study In Mandarin Chinese 
Milligan students may take up to 12 hours of Asian history cour- 
ses. During the 1968-69 school year I had the pleasure of taking 
the Cultural History of China Course, an experience which I 
shall not soon forget. 

Getting to know Dr. Tsao Is an education In Itself. His ex- 
periences as a career diplomat, his narrow escapes during 
two different Invasions of China, his extensive publications, 
and his own personal charm and humor make him a fascina- 
ting source of scholarship. Furthermore, he witnesses his 
calm but vital faith in Jesus Christ both in the classroom and 
in the concern he shows for students who turn to him for counsel. 

The liberal arts college attempts to broaden the perspectives 
and hence, the understanding of its students. It seems unlikely 
that such a goal can be achieved If we ignore the culture of 
two-thirds of the world's population. It Is encouraging to see a 
growing number of Mllligan students show interest in Asian 
Studies. Perhaps the day will come when all Milligan students 
will have a more extended introduction to Asian culture through 
the Humanities Program . The College already possesses the 
nucleus of a collection of Far Eastern art objects currently 
on display In the library. It Is hoped that significant additions 
to this collection can be made In tbe future. 

In attempting to demonstrate the universal witness of the Gos- 
pel, the Apostle Paul said, "I have become all things to all men, 
that I might by all means save some. 1 do it all for the sake 
of the gospel, that I may share In Its blessing." (D Cor. 9; 
22, 23) As Christ's people we must not only be characterized 
by our willingness to share our knowledge of Him but we must 
be willing to develop the breadth of understanding that equips 
us to witness effectively to people from cultures other than our 
own. It Is this synthesis of the traditional '•liberal . s" and 
God's revelation of Himself in Jesus of Nazareth that con- 
stitutes the rationale for a Chrfstian liberal arts college.

. . . "Men, I work for Milllgan College; I don't work for you." 
—overheard at a meeting of the Pardee family 

... "1 am thankful for Emmanuel. It Is contemporary, up-to- 
date, relevant." -- Dr. William Banoswsky, speaking at the Em- 
manuel School of Religion presidential Inauguration. 

. . . "Because they were there. " — Hart Hall dorm coun- 
cillor when asked why the women's rules were changed. 


Rejoice Milligan students! "Wonderful Wednesday' has come In 
the Fall this year. A morale-boosting change In women's rules has 
allowed Milllgan women to wear slacks nearly everywhere and 
stay out until 11:00 p.m. on week nights. 

In a break with STAMPEDE policy, a stand must be taken on an 
issue: At the expense of almost certain unpopularity, we must 
strike out against this move. In an age, which has witnessed 
moral decay at every turn, Milllgan College, like a bastion, 
has retained her identity. Now it appears that this Image must 
be auctioned off because an unrepresentative dorn council wants 
to be like everyone else. 

We can only add a hearty amen to President Nixon's statement 
In Phoenix, Arizona following the San jose rock throwing in- 
cident - "For too long, the strength of freedom in our society 
has been' eroded by a creeping permissiveness - In our legisla- 
tures. In our courts, in our universities . . . The time has come 
to draw the line." 


In o press release this morning, STAMPEDE editor Marie Gar- 
rett denied rumors that she was filing suit against the MILLAGENDA 
on grounds of plagiarism. She did, however, confirm an uncon- 
firmed report that the STAMPEDE was planning in a future issue 
to endorse BUI Brock for the U. S. Senate. 


"Which member of the Milllgan community Is most responsible 
(or establishing the guidelines to which the Collegewill conform? 
i.e. who makes life miserable for you at Milllgan College? 

The preceding question was recently asked of the student body 
and faculty at Milllgan College in a survey conducted by the Young 
Republican's Club. The results are interesting and reveal that the 
Milllgan Family Is not really sure who their daddy Is. The results 
tallied as follows: 

Steve Lacy, Chairman of the Board of Trustess, 56%; Stuart 
BerUand, 30%; Splro Agnew, 9%. The remaining 5% of those 
polled were Democrats and didn't count. 

The survey has been taken, but the question still remains. 
Who does call the signals at M. U.? J use because Steve Lacy was 
'elected' by the survey, does that make him boas? 

Plagued by these questions. I set out trying to find some an- 
swers. But the more people I talked to, the more confused 1 
became. Some faculty members maintained that the school was 
not headed by any one man or group but was built on the Chris- 
tian principles taught In the Bible. 

One member of the administration tried to convince me that 
student militant, John Rohrbaugh, was secretly running the school. 
But when I confronted Rohrbaiigh with this accusation, he Just 
mumbled something about trying to burn it, not run it, and 
showed me the door with his machine gun. 

The first clue made Itself apparent to me while reading the 
program of scheduled meetings of the Boards of Advisors and 
Trustees for the Fall session. I reall, ed that most of the meet- 
ings were being held In the Seminar rooms and In the Welshlmer 
room of the library. Then like a flash, I remembered that the 
President's office was also located In the library. The clincher 
came when a friend showed me an official memorandum which he 
had found in a wastecan. It was signed Stanley Newton. Prime 
Minister, Milllgan College. 

Albert Gore is not deadl I talked with him this morning.

"The standards of the law

— Oliver Wendell Holmes 

The Milligan chapter of the 
women's liberation movement 
received a giant boost last 
week. Only fifty years after re- 
ceiving the vote, women at 
Milllgan College are now al- 
lowed to wear slacks almost 
anywhere and even stay out as 
late as eleven o'clock on week 

The repercussions of this 
liberation are already being 
felt on campus. A study com- 
mittee has been appointed by 
the Student Council to check 
into what constitutes a "mu- 
tilated" pair of slacks. Even 
more pressing is the dilemma 
faced by the female Milllgan 
student as to what she can do 
with the extra half an hour of 
night time freedom allotted 
her Sunday through Thursday. 
Some have suggested that the 
extra time would allow the 
Milllgan female to play an- 
other game of Scrabble, watch 
the entire Marcus Welby.M.D. 
show with her boyfriend, or 
find a vacant spot In Hopwood 
parking lot. 

How much more liberaliza- 
tion at Milllgan is in the making 
is difficult to say. It has been 
rumored that students may be 
allowed as high as six chapel 
cuts and /or tardles, which- 
ever comes first, before re- 
ceiving a "U" In public pro- 
grams. Already In the process 
is a restriction that would pro- 
hibit Tony Stout from riding his 

tricycle up Sutton Hill. 

Though exaggerated as these 
cases may be, law and order at 
Milllgan College Is a real pro- 
blem. The situation appears to 
be that Milllgan is searching 
for the personal among the list 
of Impersonal laws. Milllgan, 
by the use of rules, seems to 
be trying to mold its students, 
rather than trying to build them. 

Though there Is a need for 
laws in order that the Institu- 
tion may function, the over- 
abundance of rules only Inhi- 
bits the freedom of the student 
to function. College should act 
as a proving ground where a- 
student can test and build bis 
character, as well as his ed- 

ucation and Intellect. Thevalue 
Judgements of a student who 
has been "molded" for four 
years, Instead of being mo- 
tivated for four years. Is ques- 

The recent ruling by the 
Women's Dorm Council is not 
about to drastically change the 
total moral character of the 
Milligan student. This long a- 
walied ruling Is good and is not 
of an over -demanding nature 
upon anyone's principles of 
conduct. More constructive 
rulings, such as the one on 
women's hours and dress, 
would be appreciated, even by 
the male population of Milligan

crush King 
grid squad 

The Milllgan "All-Star" In- 
tramural football team has had 
i successful two game series 
against the King College grid- 

The first game was played 
Saturday, October 24, at Mil- 
llgan. The Buffs won handily a- 
^alnst an out-classed King Col- 
lege team. It was virtually a field 
lay for the Milligan offensive 

Jack ''Fugitive from the Fa- 
:ulty" Knowles, Bruce Kregloe, 
ind Al Aubrey each posted a pair 
if touch-downs, with Charlie 
Uderman, and Gail Cox making 
me touch-down each, which 
omblned with extra points, to- 
aled 54 offensive points. 

Milllgan's overpowering de- 
ense never allowed the King 
:ollege offense enough room 
o make any serious threats 
urlng the game. The final 
core was 54-0. 

The second game resulted in 
24-2 win for the Buffaloes. 
ouch-downs were scored by 
mie "Hot-dog" Hertzog, Gay- 
Cox, Charlie Alderman, and 
nice Kregloe. King's lone 
:ore was the result of a two 
suit safety.

ches by close margins. 

Milllgan's only singles victo- 
ry came from Keith Lisle, a 
freshman who shows great pro- 
mise. Lisle won his match 6-4, 
5-7, 6-2. 

In doubles competition the 
Buffs faired considerably bet- 
ter with Wilson and Dale Bar- 
cus teaming up for a 5-7, 6-2, 
6-2 victory. Lisle and Ordway 
handily won their match 6-2, 
6-2. The doubles match also 
saw Turpin and Robby Gardner 
post a victory in their match. 

The Buffaloes have Wilson, 
Turpin, Ordway, and Barcus, 
as returning veterans from 
last season's team. In addition 
they have two able newcomers 
In the form of Lisle and Gar- 

In view of the experience 
offered by the first 4 players, 
plus the ability of the new men, 
the Buffs are rather optimistic 
about the up-coming spring sea- 

The outlook for the *70-'7i 
Buffs Indicates a somewhat Im- 
proved season. There are six 
returning lettermen, headed by 
Little All-American candidate 
Charles "Toonle" Cash. Cash, 
a 5'11" senior guard, has es- 
tablished the Buffs' career 
scoring record with 2096 ca- 
reer points going Into his sen- 
ior year. 

Cash will be serving as co- 
capialn with three-year letter- 
man Gary Class, a 6'1" for- 

Also returning as lettermen 
are 5'11" guard Threlkeld — 
the Buffs second leading 
scorer last year as a fresh- 
man, and 6'1" forward Dale 
Clayton who moved up to a 
starting spot for the Buffs the 
last part of his freshman year. 

Other lettermen returning 
are 6*1" guard Doug Drake 
and 6'4" forward Larry Woc- 

The Buffs have two pro- 
mising looking transfers in the 
form of Mark Berg, a 6*1" 
guard who transfers to the Buffs 
from the University of Michigan 
where he has played two years. 
The other transfer is 6'7" 
Truman Bell, who comes to 
Milllgan from .. Jacksonville 
Junior College, Jacksonville, 

Five freshmen have also 
earned varsity spots. They 
art Roy Wright, a 6'S" for- 
ward, Scott McClaren, a 6'4" 
post-man, Larry Smith, a 6-

Also returning to the Buffs 
is 6*3" Terry Owens, who has

the Armed Forces. 

The Milllgan cagers have had 
an opportunity to analyze them- 
selves through the aid of a ra- 
ther vigorous pre-season game 
schedule. These games were 
against Lees-McCrea, Isother- 
mal, and the Carter County 
Bank team, which Is an inde- 
pendent team composed of for- 
mer college players. 

The Buffs closed out their 
pre-season schedule with a 
106-85 win over a strong Iso- 
thermal team which had dealt 
them a 101-85 defeat Inanearl- 
ler encounter. 

The game, which was played 
Tuesday, 10 November, had 
Berg as the Buffs leading scor- 
er with 29 points. Following 
close behind was Threlkeld 
who shot 28. 

The rebounding saw Wright 
and McClaren grabbing 9 a- 
plece. Adding extra support 
on the boards was Dale Clay- 
ton who came down with 8 

Cash, Berg, Threlkeld, and 
Wright have dominated the 
Buffs pre-season scoring. Each 
have been able to maintain 
consistent double figure 

High - flying McClaren, 
Wright (again) andClayton have 

been stand-outs also. These 
are the board hawks who set 
the pre-season rebounding 

Having rounded out their pre- 
season pla>, with a 3-2 re- 
cord.tbe Bufl cagers are now 
making final adjustments In an- 
ticipation of their opener a- 
galnst Johnson Bible College. 
The game will be played on 
the Buffs home court, Saturday, 
November 14. 

Coach Worrell, commenting 
on the opener said, "John- 
son doesn't have much size 
but they've got good shooters. 
They gave us a tough time last 
season. It should be an ex- 
citing game and I'm looking 
forward to it," 

The Bufialoes will be on the 
road following their opener on 
the 14. They will return home 
following the King College 
Thanksgiving Tournament, 
which will be held in Bristol 
November 26, 27, and 28. 

Participating in the tourna- 
ment will be Milligan, Clinch 
Valley. King College, Beckley

Coach Worrell predicts that 
it will be an exciting tourna- 
ment since all six teams are 
expecting good seasons. 

The game following the King 
tournament will be on 3 De- 
cember, against Cincinnati 
Bible Seminary.

Student Council Haunted House 
successfully scares students 

Late Halloween nightthe stu- 
dents of Mllligan College were 
treated to an evening haunted 
by creatures which would have 
made Boris Karloff, Lon 
Chaney, or Victor Hugo, awake 
from their chilly depths and 
take notice. 

The place was a real 
"haunted house", allegedly 
owned by Dr. Joseph Dampier 
of Emmanuel School of Reli- 

It was estimated that over 
two hundred Mllligan people 
toured the "family room" in 
the basement, the BettyCrock- 

er-approved kitchen, the upper 
playrooms, wherein lurked 
other grotesque creatures, and 
the attic of household trea- 

The atmosphere was appro- 
priate, as dark clouds shrouded 
the night. 

Characters from Holly- 
wood's days of suspense and 
terror led the tours which 
started from the parking area. 
The trail led down a dark, 
muddy road on which ghouls 
and other uglles materialized. 

Jack the Ripper, Count 
Dracula, and others spent a 
great deal of time donning 

make - up and elaborate cos- 
tumes to frighten the living. 

If one made it through the 
macabre circuit unscathed, he 
could have had his fortune read 
by seer, Debbie Leigh. 

Cider, cupcakes, and pop- 
corn balls, refreshed thosewho 
sustained their appetites. 

The evening was drama- 
tically topped by Jim Byer-

stories that Poe would have

This recommendation pass- 
ed the council with unanimous

iate support from the office 
of the dean of men which put 
the plan into operation.

ments concerning this park- 
ing change should be directed 
to the Student Council Park- 
ing Committee which Is com- 
posed of Jim Mounts, chair- 
man, BUI Oates, Larry Crane, 
Jan Mclntyre, Ruth Deer, or 
the dean of men's office. 

At the November 19 meet- 
ing of the council a unan- 
imous recommendation was 
sent to Dr. C. Robert Wet- 
zel's office concerning Spring 
Break. The suggestion 
*as to change Spring 
Break from March 24 - 30 
to March 19-29. 

If this recommendation be- 
comes effective, it will mean 
an Increase of three days with 
a weekend to begin and end 
the vacation period rather 
than one In the middle of tbe 
current vacation. 

Knowledge of the outcome 
of this recommendation Is ex- 
pected by the first of Decem- 

A committee to Investigate 
the current status of the Dean's 
List, composed of Anne Tay- 
lor, Ernie Hertzog, and Patty 
Derrlckson, reported to the 
council on November 19. 

The current Dean's List re- 
quirement was for a student 
to obtain either all A's or 
all A's and one B for any 
given semester In order to 
be honored. 

The Student Coj il com- 
mittee's recommendation to 
Dean Wetzel was to establish 
two new lists based upon grade 
point average, rather than the 
actual grades themselves. 

Any student earning a 3.75 
semester average would be on 
the first Dean's list andanyone 
with a 3.5 to 3.749 would be on 
the second Dean's list. 

This recommendation was 
approved by the Academic 
Committee, according to Dean 
Wetzel, and will take effect 
the current Fall Semester. 

WHAT IN THE WORLD? - Our law enforcement officer seems 
to be having some trouble adjusting to the fact that dormitory 
students may now actually park near their dormitories. Cheer 
up, Officer Rector; Tickets may still be given to students who 
park in reserved spaces.

First to win spirit stick ! 

Sons of Buffalo have spirit 

MUllgan's basketball victory 
over Johnson Bible College on 
Saturday, November 14, her- 
alded not only a new scoring 
record for the Bulls, but also 
the birth of a new club on the 
campus of Mllllgan College. 

Calling themselves the Sons 
of Buffalo, the group was a- 
warded the "Spirit Stick" for 
the campus organization ex- 
hibiting the most spirit. 

The most obvious thingaboui 
this organization seems to be 
Its lack of it. According to 
club spokesman, the Sons of 

Buffalo are In existence for 
two reasons: (1) to promote 
school spirit; and (2) to pro- 
test institutions. 

Therefore this "non-frater- 
niiy" refuses to charge dues, 
call meetings, elect officers, 
or sponsor a Founder's Daugh- 
ter candidate. The club motto 
Is "Divided We Stand, United 
We Fall." - Irving Spltzberg. 

Although governed by no of- 
ficial policies or creeds, sev- 
eral similarities can be de- 
tected In the Sons of Buffalo.

Stick was awarded to the non-f rate miry. Sons of Buffalo, and lis 
sisier non-sorority. Daughters of the American Bison, in re- 
cognition of outstanding school spirit at recent ballgames. 

Circle K club provides 
spirit stick, trash cans 

The Circle K service or- 
ganization of Milligan College 
has undertaken many service 
projects ro profit both the col- 
lege and community. 

The latest addition to the 
campus was several trash re- 
cepticles painted and distribu- 
ted by the club to be used In 
an effort to stop Utter "pollu- 
tion at Mllllgan College. 

The addition of the Buffalo 
mascot and "spirit stick" at 
MUllgan's home basketball 
games is a service of the 
club in order to promote 
school spirit. 

The "spirit stick" will be 
awarded to any club or organ- 
ization who, in the opinion of 
the cheerleaders, displays the 
best and loudest school spirit. 
The "stick" will be awarded 
to a different group at each 
home basketball game, at the 
discretion of the cheerlead- 

An additional service project 
at all home ballgames Ls the 
printing and distribution of 
rosiers at no charge to the at- 
tending basketball fans.

are In the procesB of promot-

In coordination with the 
events of Founder's Day week-

According to Dr. E. LeRoy 
Law son, Administrative As- 
sistant to President Johnson, 
the President's Club has sev- 
eral purposes. 

In addition to raising money, 
the club Ls to help Identify 
the college with East Tennes- 
see. Mllllgan hopes to receive 
support from the local com- 
munity, and to make the com- 
munity aware of the services 
Milligan offers to it.

on financial decisions, will be

Although the first emphasis 
of the president's Clubhas been 
in East Tennessee, all parts 
of America are to be Involved. 
Club banquets will be held 
throughout the United States. 
The first of these banquets 
will be December 7 in Indian-

Not Merely the Past 

Founder's Day Is a time to remember, to recapture days in 
our lives which are now history at Milligan College, to con- 
sider the lives and contributions of such men as J osepbus Hop- 
wood and Robert Milligan. to reflect on the hopes and prin- 
ciples upon which this college is founded, to review the progress 
that has been made throughout the years. 

Reelecting upon the past is important. Founder's Day, however, 
should also be a lime in which we project our thoughts into the 
future. We need perhaps to concentrate not only on the origin of 
Milligan College but also upon its destiny. A consideration of Mil- 
ligan's goals for the future, of its potential, of the means of real- 
izing this potential is not only helpful but also essential. 

Founder's Day Is a busy time, a time in which we are neces- 
sarily concerned with our present activities. At the same time, 
however, we must realize that the present is intimately bound 
to und affected by both the past and the future. As we are involved 
In the events of Founder's Day this year, let us not concentrate 
solely upon the past for its own sake. Let us reflect instead upon 
the impact which it has In our lives now and upon our future.

The Sense of B.O. 

Founder's Day: a commem- 
oration at Milligan College, 
on the fourth Friday of No- 
vember, wherein the students 
pay homage to the founding 
fathers of the school. 

We celebrate MUllgan's 
past at this time. Rather Chan 
bother ourselves with talking 
of cranberries, parades, foot- 
ball games, the Mayflower, and 
Indians, we delight in talking 
about holy trees stumps, vi- 
sions, hard times and bad 
times. This is the difference 
between the festive atmosp- 
here at Milligan, as compared 
to the rest of the United States. 

We look back, remembering 
and criticizing, Bui would it 
not be incredible If news- 
paper, rather than review the 
past, could look into the fut- 

We know what Founder's Day 
and Milligan means today, but 
let us see what they would be 
In the years nearer the age of 
"Star Trek". 

A.D. 2000. it has been thirty- 
three years since my first 
Founder's Day. Of my first 
four Founder's Days, 1 spent 
three in Ohio with my family. 
One was spent at Milligan with 
a very close friend of mine 
who was a candidate (or Foun- 
der's Daughter and later be- 
came my wife. 

Our youngest son, who is the 
president of Mllligan's senior 
class of 2001, and a columnist 
with the STAMPEDE, writes 
us of the changes that will be 
in store for us when we re- 
visit our alma mater this week. 
He reports; 

"Do not be surprised at all 
the changes that have been made 
in the last thirty years. 

This year began one-half 
week before Labor Day, as it 
has for the past few years. 
However, Freshmen were 
treated to a little different or- 
ientation than you were pro- 
bably used to. 

The first night, we were as- 
signed to teams, by a random 
method which used our zip 
codes. The complete lottery 
was done by the new l.BJvl. 
computer, which is located 
in the men's room acrossfrom 
the registrar's office. It was 
placed there, partly because 
it was the only available room. 

Our first night of entertain- 
ment was also the lirsr night of 
the worldfamous Madrigal Din- 
ner. The colorful evening is 
held in the canyon, on fair 
nights, until late October when 
it is moved to the button din- 
ing hall. 

Bill Oates 

An ancient Milligan rule al- 
lowing the students to park at 
the top of this hill, near their 
dormitories, has been all but 
forgotten, when thels pageant 
begins. Evening meals have 
also been cancelled, so that the 
Madrigal food will be served 
on time. 

However, Student Council 
president, Rudolph Robrbaugh 
offers a solution. He believes 
that justice will be done if 
supper meals are served at 
the breakfast hour. 

But council secretary 
"Hooker" Core Morton feels 
that such a move might "up- 
set the student body." Be- 
sides, whoever heard of com 
flakes and greasy cheese sand- 
wiches for breakfast? 

When 1 questioned a spokes- 
man from the music depart- 
ment about this dinner, he 

"No, I do not feel that there 
is too much commercialism In- 
volved In this wonderful page- 
at. For only $10 a night, they 
can have nearly two full hours 
of yuletlde Joy." 

This came after the an- 
nouncement that the Hamilton 
National Bank had purchased 
tickets for the month of Novem- 
ber and no freshmen would be 
able to attend, because all the 
other tickets had been sold 
before the end of last sum- 
mer; before they had a chance 
to buy them. 

"Hooker's" father, chair- 
man of the board Melvln Mor- 
ton, reports that the policy- 
making toe of Mllligan's foot, 
has accepted the donation and 
terms for building the W.R. 
Oates Chapel, to replace the 
outdated one. 

This building will be built 
at a cost of over $10,000! 
Some of the stipulations for 
its construction and use are: 

1) It is to be built on stilts, 
so that ft will be the highest 
point on the Milligan campus. 

2) It is to have a built-in 
moog synthesizer to be played 
during all dally events and a 
steam calliope to be played 
whenever someone knows how 
"just happens along." 

3) It shall have a marquis 
on the front side to announce 
the times of church, the Mil- 
ligan movie (at which "Be- 
yond the Valley of the Dolls" 
will be shown for the chapel's 
dedication), and any other 
events scribbled in crayon on 
die Minion's Esso calendar in 
the basement of the S.U.8. 

4) The upstairs area shall 
be called "upper Oates" and 
the downstairs area shall be 
called "lower Oates." The fol- 
iage outside will naturally be 
oats, and be called "outer 

5) Foremost, this fine edif- 
ice will be both practical and 
useful. For instance, when 
there Is to be a movie shown 
In the daytime, all that will 
be needed is for someone to 
pull the cords on the perman- 
ent Venetian blinds. 

Finally, the biggest changes 
at Milligan College In thirty 
years have been; the faculty 
women being allowed to teach 
class in slacks, lines painted 
in the canyon as potential park- 
ing slots, and co-educational 
sunbathing permitted on the 
Sutton lawn." 

This was his report to me. 
For the dedication of my chap- 
el, I will catch the first Pied- 
mont prop-jet into Tri-Citles 
International Airport, and be 
ready tospendmyflrstThanks- 
glvlng away from home In thirty 

— If you think this was all 
absurd, you are probably right. 
But always remember this old 
saying that I once made up: 
no matter how silly things may 
appear now, just wait until the 
future, when you can look back 
and really see how silly 
everything was. 

Umption in our gumption 

One seldom picks up a newspaper without seeing some article 
concerned with the problem of pollution. Here at Milligan speak- 
ers have addressed themselves to this timely subject- perhaps 
students do not consider the litter on our campus as a form of pol- 
lution. Last spring we of the Milligan Family held what we called 
Concerned Tuesday on which we not only talked about pollution, 
but also tr'ed to do something about it in the form oi a clean- 
up campaign. Freshman cleaned the creek and did a very' ex_ 
cellent Job of it. Upper classmen cleaned other portions of the 
campus. For at least a half day our campus looked as if we were 
proud to call it ours. However, the next day Concerned Tuesday 
was a thing of the past. We had shown our concern and were ready 
to go back to our old ways of the swine — wallowing in the mire. 
Soft drinks cans, candy and gum wrappers -- you name it — 
were strewn along the walks, in the bushes, in the halls, onthe 
steps. (Picking up such by the maln'rnance force adds to the 
cost of operation which in turn increases tuition costs — cause 
and effect.) 

We have hlgl »ae«ls, r&n*l uve put a little "umption in our 
gumption?" M> rioihfci used to tell me thar actions speak so 
much louder than words. If we are truly concerned, let us back 
., our many words with a little action. It is far easier to talk 
about what ihe "industrial tycoon" Is doing to pollute our streams 
than It is to do something about Buffalo Creek, which by the way, 
empties into Watauga River, thence into Holston River, and finally 
lnio the reservoirs which serve Johnson City and Its su. ound- 
ings. "Talk is cheap."

Human A 

Pollution ^ 

Melvin Morton and Steve Knowles 

Recently, a prominent MUllgan administrator remarlced to me 
that If the administration used as Utile restraint in their di/allngs 
with the students as some students (who, me?) show In their re- 
marks about the administration, we'd have a riot. 

I didn't mean to laugh out loud, but I couldn't help it. True, 
students (some of us more than others) are frequently guilty 
oi rash statements about the administration, and 1 am glad the 
administration shows more restraint and, let's face It, matur- 
ity, than we do, but a riot at Milllgan, the Unlnvolved Campus 
of the South7 Oh, come on! 

Could anything ever provoke Milllgan students to riot 7 1 doubt 
it. When Martin Luther King was shot, some of our students ran 
through the halls cheering. When they heard that the next con- 
vocation might be dedicated to him, they threatened to walk out, 
but conflict was avoided when mention of bis name was limited 
to the opening prayer. That same year An Outside Group tried 
to organize Our Students when several students whose privacy 
seemed to have been invaded were brought before the discip- 
linary committee. I still have a "Students Are people Too" but- 
ton on my bulletin board — but 1 never wore it, and I guess no 
one else did, either. The students in question were suspended, 
and 1 assume the Outside Group gave us up for dead. 

Things don't seem to have changed much. True, at least one 
person actually did walk out of convocation when the Exkursions 
were here — rock music in Chapel. The very Ideal — but as far 
as our student newspaper is concerned, the recent national ele- 
ctions never took place. 

UC Berkeley, Milllgan Style: 

The cover of the November 2j NEWSWEEK proclaimed: "Uni- 
versity of California: Where Things Happen First." To find out 
Just how things happen to happen first at Berkeley, I visited 
Berkeley radical leader John Rorschach. We toured the campus 
the first morning I was there, and I was impressed by its pastoral 
beauty. One might even call it a corner of heaven] 

We finished our tour around noon, so I suggested that we have 
lunch at a nearby student dining hall. Rorschach became quite 
upset, however, and explained that the students were boycotting 
the dining halls. 1 apologized for my oversight — I had read in a 
national magazine that the dining halls were serving lettuce har- 
vested by non-union labor. "Are they?" Rorschach was astounded. 
"We were boycotting because the dishwasher leaves spots on 
the silverware." 

John also explained another protest which he was about to 
instigate. "We feel that the courses offered here are no longer 
relevant to today's world. So we're going to boycott all 8.-00 
classes until the physical education department agrees to offer 
a course in ski studies." 

In the afternoon we attended a speech to the students made by 
an administrative spokesman. "We have to watch our tendency 
to show our affection in public," he remonstrated. (I myself 
had been embarrassed several times by men kissing their girls 
on the public porches of the dormitories.) "The Board of Re- 
gents is meeting this week, and the eyes of the voters are on 
you. We must be conscious of our appearance. Remember, the 
way you look will determine how soon we get our new cyclotron." 

That night 1 flew back to East Tennessee, thankful that I could 
pursue knowledge In a less hectic aid radical environment. 

It seems to me that the goal of education at Mllligan Is to pro- 
duce a quiet, conservative member of our society who will be 
able to take care of himself economically, and who will, above 
all else, mind his own business. Concern ior others is almost 
non-existani. Many of us are concerned enough once a year to 
help with Toys for Tots, and a few are concerned enough all 
the time to work with something like the teacher corps, but 
that's about it. If Christian Education (Milligan-style) is to 
truly become the Hope of the Word, we will have to put more 
emphasis on concern with what happens in the world, and 
lei outward appearance take care oi Itself,

Student questions policies 
after convocation speech 

To the editor: 

Dr. Lawson's speech during 
Convocation on Nov. 19 seemed 
to rile a few students. Some 
students felt an inferred pres- 
sure from the speech suggest- 
ing we become plastic people 
In order for MUllgan to re- 
ceive funds from "establish- 
ment oriented" donors. Also 
some students felt their inte- 
grity insulted by a supposed 
suggestion that they should sa- 
crifice a few of their personal 
freedoms In order to save Mil- 
llgan from going under fin- 
ancially. Most students let the 
words flow apathetically over 
them while many others slept. 

Perhaps the speaker Intend- 
ed only to commend the stu- 
dent body for Its status quo 
and for the image MUllganiies 
have presented. Perhaps the 
"radical" listeners misinter- 
preted an unintended slightly 
controversial speech. What- 
ever happened Thursday, did, 
however, cause a rumbling 
within the student body. 

The purpose of this letter 
is to bring the rumbling out 
In the open and to question 
the motivation of school po- 
licies. Milllgan Is now con- 
cerned with a threatened loss 
of students and financial debt. 
Certainly something Is wrong 
considering the large student 
turnover rate. A mandatory 
unjust food planand dress code, 
double standards for men and 
women, compulsory social 
norms based on Christian tra- 

Milligan may 
ignore love 
in education 

Dear Editor, 

1 would like to offer a com- 
ment on an often neglected as- 
pect of Christian Education: 

I love you. 
(I may speak In the ton- 
gues of men or of angels.) 
I gave you a second chance. 
(Love is patient.) 
You excluded me; you be- 
came close to someone else. 
(Love is kind and envies 
no one.) 

You upset me — 1 just can't 
have you around. 

(Never selfish . . .) 
You threw curses atmewhen 
you lost your temper. 

(Not quick to take offense.) 
You lost your temper once 
before, too. 

(Love keeps no score of 

But because you are a child 
of God, 1 love you. 

(1 am as a sounding gong 
or a clanging cymbal.) 

Joy Moss Lampion 
, Psychology major 

ditlonal morality, and lack of 
social activities appear as 
basic complaints. As a stu- 
dent I'm asking why do these 
controversies exist year after 
year without major change. I 
think the problem stems from 
conflict with what students want 
and what the administration and 
donors want for the students. 
Is Mllligan responsible only to 
student desires . . . only donor 
desires ... or only to acade- 
mic quality and spiritual val- 

ues? ... or should all three 
be considered? Possibly, 
money has the heaviest in- 
fluence on decision making at 

To the dissenter of the sys- 
tem is the usual comeback: 
"Love it or Leave U." But to 
the people who control Mil- 
llgan: 'Change It or Lose it.' 

Dennis Wyan 

Speech major 


Much Is being written about employment prospectsfor the Class oi 
1971. Thousands of college graduates will be entering the Job market 
at a time when the national economy is experiencing lis most serious 
recession in ten years. 

At the present it appears that there will be adequate Job op- 
portunities for ambitious college graduates but there wUl not be 
the wide selection of opportunities with competing sala r ies which 
have greeted earlier graduates. 

On the other hand, the national recession may not be reflected 
as severely In the avattabUity of graduate fellowships, asslstent- 
shlps and loans. Thus graduating seniors may want to give more 
serious attention to the prospects of entering graduate school. 

Area chairmen of MUllgan maintain files or post announce- 
ments concerning graduate programs in their particular acadmic 
disciplines. Dr. Robert Liston, Dr. Dennis Helsabeck or I would 
be pleased to counsel with students concerning available graduate 
programs. There Is a significant percentage of last year's senior 
class currently enrolled in graduate school. Several of these were 
the recipients of full feUowshlps or graduate assistants hips. 

Graduate school is not just the concern of seniors. At this point 
either seniors have done adequate academic work for graduate school 
acceptance or they have not. A capable senior who has been satisfied 
with 2.0 GPA will likely find that graduate admissions commitu-e 
are not moved by eleventh hour academic repentance. 

Many college freshmen have no more thought of applying for grad- 
uate school than many high school freshmen have of applying for 
college. Thus may 1 recommend that ail underclassmen acquaint 
themselves with the nature of graduate school and the general 
entrance requirements. Such an acquaintance will enable students 
to plan their undergraduate programs and may even increase the 
flow of adrenalin when they find themselves becoming academically 


Sometime ago Danny Clark loaned me his copy of Dietrich 
Bonhoeffer's book, 1 Loved This People . Having read Letters 
and Papers from Prison, 1 was anxious to read more of the thoughts 
of this faithful German pastor who died at the hands of the Gestapo 
In 1945. 

It was no surprise to find Danny's copy underlined and noteo 
from beginning to end. Dietrich Bonhoeffer Involved himself In 
the tragic life of his nation during the war years but yet never 
lost sight of his basic faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. He lived 
long enough to see that when all ethical concepts were thrown 
Into confusion by evil, the slick, glib answers based on reason, 
principle, conscience, freedom and virtue could easUy be com- 
promised. Thus in response to the question, "Who stands firm?" 
he answers, "the one . . . who is ready to sacrifice all these 
(reason, principle, etc.), when In faith and sole allegiance to God 
he is called to obedient and responsible action, the responsible 
person, whose life wUl be nothing but an answer to God's ques- 
tion and call." 

His final question haunts me: "Where are these responsible

Notes Milligan's growth 

Dr. Walker recalls the past 

The one man who probably 
knows most about tbe Milllgan 
growth and history of Milllgan 
College would be the college's 
former president, and pre- 
sent chancellor. Dr. Dean E. 

Twenty years ago. Dr. Walk- 
er resigned from his teaching 
position at Butler University 
to accept the office of presi- 
dent of Mllligan College. Dr. 
Walker held this office until 
1968, at which time he was ap- 
pointed to the position of chan- 
cellor of the college. 

When Dr. Walker first came 
to MUllgan College he had be- 
fore him the great task of re- 
viving the college. World War 
II had brought almost complete 
financial devastation to Mil- 
llgan College. With the school 
in debt about $150,000.00, MU- 
llgan College had practically 
no endowment because most 
people thought the college would 
soon fold. 

The difficulties of tbe 
school In tbe early fifties were 
not limited to financial pro- 
blems. The music department 
at that time was headed by a 
man whose musical experience 
had consisted of conducting a 
band In a circus. There was 
not one ph. D. on the faculty, 
and the highest paid professor 
received $3,000.00 a year. 

With all these problems be- 
fore him. Dr. Walker says that 
he took refuge In the Idea that 
President J osephus Hopw ood 
had expressed in the naming 
of the college in 1882. pres- 
ident Hopwood named the col- 
lege after Robert Milllgan, then 
president of Kentucky Univer- 
sity, who in Hopwood'sestlma- 
tlon was the foremost example 
of Christian gentility in Amer- 
ica. Having this Idea in mind.

Dr. Walker set about to re- 
establish Milllgan as a col- 
lege that would offer a liber- 
al arts education In a Chris- 
tian atmosphere. 

During Dr. Walker's ten- 
ure as president, Mllligan 
College underwent much grow- 
th. The student population in- 
creased by about five hundred 
students, many of which were 
housed In tbe three new dor- 
mitories constructed during 
Dr. Walker's presidency. 

Milllgan's academic pro- 
gram and faculty were expand- 
ed Into one of the finest in 
this area, which lead to the 
college's accreditation in 1960. 

Dr. Walker does not re- 
gret that he ever gave up the 
teaching profession be so loved 
to accept an administrative 
post, because as be phrases 
it, "I can see the idea of 
Christian education at work 
In many, many more people 
than Just myself."

A not-so-merry Christmas 

350 lose jobs as Bemberg plant closes down 

Christmas, for at least 350 
local families this year may 
not be as cheerful as the holi- 
days enjoyed by the majority of 
Milllgan College students. 

Due to a scheduled suspen- 
sion of operations December f9 
at the Bemberg Plant in EHza- 
bethton many fathers will spend 
the holiday season looking for 
new employment. Also, a net 
payroll loss of some $2.5 mil- 
lion annually will probably have 
adverse affects on the local 

ElUabethton Mayor J. S, 
Cornett, as quoted in the JOHN 
CLE.sald that the fate ol Bem- 
berg' s workers "wasn't too 
encouraging." Cornett also 
stated that some of the long- 
time employees would have to 
settle for early retirement. 

Many reasons have beenciied 
for the unexpected close-down. 
One company official said that a 
higher tax assessment might 
have had a Dossible effect. A 
news release from Beaunlt's 

parent company, El Paso Nat- 
ural Gas Company, Houston, 
Texas, blamed general econo- 
mic conditions, changes in 
men's fashions, and Increas- 
ingly severe competition from 
Far Eastern import, for caus- 
ing the planned shut-down. 

The Bemberg Plant special- 
ized in a man-made-novelty 
fiber originally made in one 
other factory in Poland. How- 
ever, Bemberg's fiber process 
was sold to a plant in Japan, 
which now also produces the 


To meet the increasing influx 
of Far Eastern importing of the 
fiber, one alternative for Bem- 
berg was to increase Its pro- 
duction poundage. However, in 
compliance with union stan- 
dards more workers would have 
needed to be hired and the net 
profit would have been lost. 

Recently, the Tennessee Str- 
eam Pollution Central Board 
cited Bemberg as being in vio- 
lation of a spec la I order It 
Issued September 17. Bem- 
berg requested an extension of 
twelve months, but the request 

was refused. 

Bemberg officials replied, 
3aying thay would not be able 
to meet the twelve-month dead- 
line. Possible connection bet- 
ween the refusal and shut-down 
is posed and Mayor Cornett 
commented In the PRESS 
CHRONICLE that "there could 
be some connectfon" between 
the two. 

The Bemberg plant is offi- 
cially suspending operations 
indefinitely. Hopeforre-hiring 
is possible if general economic 
conditions were to Improve.

The Fourth Annual Milllgan 
College Madrigal Dinners come 
to a close this evening after 
eight nights of feasting and 

The Madrigal Dinners are 
under the direction of Dr. Wil- 
liam Moorhouse and Mr. and 
Mrs. Sherwyn Bachman. They 
are an outgrowth of the Mad- 
rigal Dinners held annually at 
Indiana University, The Moor- 
houses and Bachmans experi- 
enced these celebrations while 
at graduate school there. 

The first Madrigal Dinners 
was held In December of 1967. 
Four hundred people attended 
that single dinner. The din- 
ners have constantly expanded 
since that time to their pre- 
sent length of eight nights. 

The Chamber Singers, the 
group which performs at the 
dinners, have met every Tues- 
day and Thursday morning of 
the semester at 7:00 a.m. in 
preparation for their concerts. 

The members of the Cham- 
ber Singers are; Melody Fri- 
end, RachelBachman.Lee Mea- 
dor, James Bycrly, Steveknow- 
les, Mirhael Woods, Sharon 
Holiman, Anne Taylor, Nancy 
Washier, Sherwyn Bachman 
(Conductor), i)an Horr iig, and 
Dan Stuecher, 

The set for the dinners was 
designed and decorated by Mrs. 
Dorothy Wilson and her art 
classes. They also spent a 
great deal of time in prepara- 
tion for this week and one-half 
of pageantry. 

A special M^dn^al Dinner 
will be given this year at the 
home of Mrs. I), u. Phillips 

in Butler, Pennsylvania. Mrs. 
Phillips' home will present a 
beautiful and realistic setting 
for the Madrigal Dinner. The 
dinner will be held Saturday 
evening December 19. 

By tonight over 3,000 persons 
will have attended the Madrigal 

School must 
lepeat year 
of self-study 

President Jess Johnson an- 
nounced yesterday during the 
Christmas convocation that the 
college would not be automati- 
cally reaccredlted as had been 
anticipated but must undergo 
another year of self -study. 

He expressed confidence that 
reaccreditatlon will be con- 
firmed by the Southern Asso- 
ciation next year and urged 
students not to repeat rumors 
that do not contain the facts of 
the situation. 

He further explained that 
most of the original difficulties 
have been satisfactorily over- 
come even before the period of 
deferment has begun. 

Rohrbaugh appoints 
discipline commission 

The Commission will be re- 
sponsible to Rohrbaugh, who 
will report to the Executive 
Council. Proposals will then be 
presented to the Student Coun- 
cil and. If approved, to Presi- 
dent Johnson. Rohrbaugh 
stressed that all proposals will 
go through the appropriate chan- 

Rohrbaugh explained the pur- 
pose of the Commission: "Dis- 
ciplinary cases in recent years 
have not been handled in a con- 
sistent manner. Our students 
need a clear and definite out- 
line of how due process will 
function in disciplinary cases." 

The Commission members 
will be; SharonHoffman{chalr- 
man), Beth Wartwood, Mike 
France, Mike Mutterspaugh, 
and Mark Cameron. 

This Is the first of several 
presidential commlssionswhich 
will be created to deal with 
campus problems. Rohrbaugh 
expects to create a similar 
commission to deal with lib- 
rary policy in the future. 

Student Council president 

a President's Commission on 
Disciplinary Policy. 

The Commission will attempt 
to define what due process of 
disciplinary procedure exists 
on the Milllgan campus. 

The Commission will inves- 
tigate disciplinary procedure on 
other campuses similar to Mil- 
llgan and recommend Improve- 
ments In Mllligan'sdisclpltnary 
policy. Rohrbaugh anticipates 
several months of study before 
the Commission will be able to 
present any recommendations. 

125 students took part, mak- 
ing this the largest project yet. 

Old toys, new toys, and toys 
need of repair were collected, 
along with about $250. The toys 
were taken to the Marine Re- 
serves in Johnson City, where 
they will be sorted and repair- 
ed and later distributed to needy 

The J2S0 will be used to buy 
paint and other materials tore- 
pair the toys. Any money left 
over will be spent on new toys. 

Because Milllgan students 
have made such a significant 
contribution to the Toys for 
Tots campaign, the Marine Re- 
serves would like for them to 
see some of the rewards of 
their work. 

Therefore, this year any 
student who wishes may be pre- 
sent at Emoryville on Decem- 
ber 16th to see the Marines 
distribute the toys to the 
children there, A Christmas 
program will be presented and 
students who would like to sing 
or take pan in any way are 

Interested students should 
contact either Dan Sruecher or 
Dennv Denniston.

Psychology studies demonstrate 
the power of positive dreaming 

Dream deprivation and its 
adverse effects upon human 
behavior were the concerns of 
a recent psychological ex- 
periment conducted by three 
MUUgan students. 

Led by Greg Balser with 
the assistance of Jim Mounts 
and A. J. MUton, the experi- 
ment consisted of waking a 
subject each time he bagan 
to dream. Margaret Roth was 
the experimental subject, and 
Sharon Hoffman was the con- 
trol lor the experiment. 

Beginning Friday evening, 
December 4, and ending Sunday 
evening, the experiment last- 
ed sixty hours. Depression, 
withdrawal, Illusions, bos- 

earn money 
for washer 

The "M" Club has decided 
that It will adopt as its main 
project, raising funds for a 
new washer and dryer for the 
athletic department. 

With a washer and dryer, 
much money could be saved 
by having the team managers 
do their own team's laundry. 

To raise funds for the pro- 
ject, the "M" Club Is pre- 
sently selling bells, mega- 
phones, and bumper stickers 
at basketball games. They are 
also working on an "M" Club 
versus faculty basketball game 
In the near future, and an "M" 
Club band concert. 

"M" Club has shown its en- 
thusiasm by winning the spirit 
stick at the Milllgan-Tennes- 
see Wesleyan game last Mon- 
day night. 

tility and urn. coordination were 
cited as several of the results 
of the experiment. 

During the experiment, Mar- 
garet was confined to a bed, 
yet allowed to remain active 
or sleep at will. 

Statistical data was gathered 
by the use of a physlograph. 
Information was sent to the 
physlograph in the form o( 
brain waves detected by ele- 
ctrodes attached externally to 
the subject's frontal lobes of 
the brain. 

At the start of the experi- 
ment the subject was calm 
and showed no stress when 
performing various testswhlch 
were given periodically 
throughout the experiment. 
However, by 5:00 Saturday 
morning, after a night of 
dream deprivation, the sub- 
ject already showed signs of 
being weary and fumbled on 
a block test given. 

By Saturday evening the sub- 
ject's efficiency on the various 
tests was reduced to half. By 
Sunday morning the subject was 
extremely argumentative and 
hostile, while creating several 

At the close of the experi- 
ment, the subject was with- 
drawn and tried to sleep with 
her eyes open. Dreaming also 
began every two minutes as 
opposed to every fifteen min- 
utes at the start. 

Over all, after sixty hours 
of Interrupted dreams the sub- 
ject became extremely de- 
pressed, Irritable, violent, and 
nervous, while the subject after 
sixty hours of interrupted sleep 
was merely tired and weary. 

To verify the many results 
and conclusions, the experi- 
ment will be repeated in Jan- 
uary with Margaret as the 
control and Sharon as the sub-

Student Council undergoes 
self-evaluation Thursday 

The Student Council of MU- 
Ugan College underwent a self- 
evaluation in their weekly 
meeting this week. The sur- 
vey Is an attempt to improve 
the Council on a student - to- 
student level. Results shall be 
referred to a special committee 
of the council for a study of 
the survey findings. 

The Idea of the evaluation 
came from President John Ro- 
hrbaugh in his cohcern to "take 
a look at ourselves and see 
where we can Improve." 

The council-sponsored party 
In lower Seeger, Wednesday 
evening, which featured re- 
freshments and movies for all 
in attendance, was an effort 
to relieve mid-week tension 
caused by upcoming finals and 
the Madrigal Dinners. 

A menu for the cafeteria will 
be published one week In ad- 
vance by Ruth Deer, a junior 
representative on the council. 
This publication will begin at 
the start of next week.

After SUB break-in 

Five students suspended 

Five Mtlligan students were 

suspended by the president of 
the college last week following 
a breaking and entering of the 
Student Union Building. 

During a meeting on Friday, 
November 27, several possible 
alternatives of procedure were 
discussed with the five men. 
Rather than allowing the case 
to be tried In criminal court 
the college chose to assume 
disciplinary responsibility. Ex 
pulsion was also rejected as a 
suitable course of action. 

In accordance with the na- 
ture of the offense and with 
the outline of disciplinary pro- 
cedure as it appears In the 
Student Handbook, the men were 
informed of their opportunity to 
cboose either suspension from 
school for a semester or ap- 
pearance before the Discip- 
linary Committee.

incoming freshman class was 
19.5. In 1969, the median score 
was 19.8 which is the same 
as the present national aver- 
age (class of 1974). 

Yet this year' s entering 
freshman class at Milligan has 
an average score of 20.3 This 
would tend to Indicate that the 
quality of entering students 
academically, Is progressive- 
ly Improving. 

Although the college has a 
stated cut off point for accep- 
tability at a score of 16, stu- 
dents with a score lower than 
16 may enroll in the special 
summer Red Badfje program 
to increase their eligibility.

Values questioned 

A careful reassessment of values appears to be in order for some 
of the Milllgan College Student Council members. At a recent council 
meeting, a request was made for council support of FAIRE LE PONT, 
the MUllgan College literary magazine. FAIRE LE PONT has been 
published annually for the past two years and has been financed 
from a portion of the Humanities budget. Trimming of the financial 
allotments to all areas this year has made it necessary in the 
Humanities department to cut out the grant for the publication 
of FAIRE LE PONT to permit adequate funds for continuation of 
the Humanities program. A group of students are still determined 
to publish a volume of the magazine this year and have petitioned 
the Student Council for $100, one half the amount of money neces- 
sary. Their request was denied. 

This year Student Council has appropriated $200 for a freshman 
basketball team and an undetermined sum ior installation of pipe- 
lines and faucets in the canyon for car washing. While these pro- 
jects may be worthy of support, their merits should be compared 
with the opportunities for intellectual development and free crea- 
tive literary expression provided for the students by the publica- 
tion of FAIRE LE PONT. Adequate provision for such opportuni- 
ties cannot be provided by the BUFFALO and STAMPEDE alone. 
The literary magazine form completes the area of student public- 

Last year the magazine contained an excellent display of the 
creative talents of Milllgan students. Our students this year possess 
talents at least equally as worthy of notice. We urge the council 
to work toward fulfilling its role of "providing the student with an 
opportunity to express himself," as stated in the 1970-71 student 
handbook, and to reasonably and adequately support the efforts 
of the students to continue the annual publication of FAIRE LE

Tradition dictates that every 
woman of respect must main- 
tain a "proper" position in 
society. To those who know, 
none will doubt that Milligan 
College wishes every coed to 
uphold the highest of these 

As an individual, I main- 
tain that the Women's Lib- 
eration Front can achieve 
nothing unless their cause is 
worthwhile. Further, I believe 
that every man is morally and 
ethically bound to give every 
due consideration that Is worthy 
of a lady's respect. 

Recently, incidents havemade 
me aware of a rather unfort- 
unate trend that has been over- 
looked by the social mentors 
ol Mllligan "norms," If a coed 
wishes to contact a boy in his 
dormitory, she has only two 
alternatives: (1) she may call 
him In advance on the tele- 
phone -- (they never seem to 
work when you need them the 
most, besides the call costs 
a dime) or (2) knock loudly on 
entrance doors, shout loudly 
from the street and / or throw 
objects at windows, merely to 
attract some resident's at- 
tention — a most unladylike 
mannerism that should not be 
tolerated nor encouraged. 

I wish to propose to the 
Board of Trustees, the Of- 
fice ol the president and the 
Student Council tourgentlycon- 
sider the possibility of having 
the lobbies of men's dorml- 
lorie- open to our lady guests, 
where they can be greeted v,ith 
due propriety. It seems that the 
advantages gained by laying 
down certain ground rules for 
such a policy far outweigh the 
crude behavior coeds must, 
out of neccesity, resort towhen 
they find It necessary to tall

The creation of a commis-

to study all aspects of the stu-

recommendation of the com-

separate fee-supported student

sity and to have the proposed 
commission advise them no 
later than February 1. 1971, on 
the procedures to be followed 
to do this. 

Student publications at the 

University are presently sup- 
ported by funds allocated from

Tlie student turnover rate at Mllllgan College - what causes it? 
In an exclusive Interview last wee*, Prime Minister Stanley 
Newton set my mind at ease by assuring me that low student mor- 
ale was not due to any of the college's policies. In his opinion the 
average Mllligan student Is merely very Insecure and has diffi- 
culty In finding a group of friends with which to Identify. 

With these thoughts in mind, the next few lines are offered 
as an appendix to the Student Handbook with the hope that every 
Mllllgan student can make It in one of these groups. 

■•COUPLES" - If you are not engaged already, it should be 
well understood that it is only a matter of time. Ideally, the male 
should be a member of Circle K and the female a member of 
Civinettes. Your reserved seats are the third and fourth tables 
from the back of the cafeteria on the west side. 

GROOVY GROUP - Wardrobe: 1 shirt of questionable origin, 
1 pair of bell-bottomed Jeans, wire-rimmed glasses, and a dazed 
expression. Your reserved seats are the back two tables on the 
west side of the cafeteria. If anyone asks what you are doing at 
Mllligan College, say you are transcending It. Attend Hopwood 

YOUNG- REPUBLICAN" Croup - Attend Collegiate Church at the 
Chapel even though your minister Is a staunch Democrat. Ward- 
robe: Men - 10 Towncraft suits and 15 Towncraft sports coats; 
Women - It doesn't matter as long as it is no more than 1.047 
millimeters above the knee when seated. If you ever hear anyone 
complain about MilHgan College, say. "Well, I've thought about It 
a lot, and If you don't like it here at Mllllgan, you don't really have 
to come here." 

JOCKS - Uniform: basketball shoes, Jeans, football Jersey, and 
no expression. Your grade point average should be somewhere 
between 1.8 and 2.03. If anyone asks what's wrong with Mllllgan 
College, say "The Humanities Program." 

PARDEE MASHERS - Buy a yellow car and be back at school 
two days before Freshman Week begins. Be a freshman team- 
leader. Starting on Talent Night of Freshman Week, take out every 
girl In the freshman class. 

STUDENT LEADERS - Buy a blue car and be back at school two 
days before Freshman Week begins. Learn to be sly and dis- 
honest. Learn how to spell your name.

Student escapes MilHgan 'box' 

(For everyone to see) (at MilHgan College)?" 

As everyone knows, Mllligan women are not allowed to sin as 
much as Mllllgan men. To be more precise, women may not go 
out to eat at the Blue Circle at 12:30 a.m. or smoke, and If they are 
caught drinking, being a MilHgan athlete won't help. 

The question to be asked is: what is to be done about the double- 
standard at MilHgan College? Should we here at Human Pollution 
praise it to the heavens or denounce It to the place below? Cer- 
tainly, notable stands have been taken on both sides of the issue - 
the Bible is for It and Abraham Lincoln is against it. All we can 
do Is to completely avoid the issue and turn the question over to 

The Student Council recently had a great deal of success with 
a faculty evaluation. We will try something of the same nature. 
Please rate the following Items with numbers between 1 and 
32.847, where 1 is POOR and 32,847 is SOMEWHAT BETTER. 
When in doubt, put your Social Security Number. 

1) A man smoking 

2) A woman smoking 

3) Smoking What? 

4) A woman arriving at her dormitory at 1:30 a.m. 

5) A woman furtively enjoying a smoke on the roof of Hart 
Hall at 2:45 a.m.

Dear Lditor: 

After reading Dennis Wyatt's 
letter, I fell a strong desire 
to express some common feel- 
ings and frustrations. I am an 
average student and a con- 
cerned student but not con- 
cerned enough to stay, so 1 will 
be classed in the "large stu- 
dent turnover rate" andonewho 
could not love It so had to leave 

Perhaps failing to become a 
Mllllganlte is my own fault. 

I will have been here a year 
at the end of the semester but 
apparently I can't get Into the 
MilHgan Family because I'm not 
concerned the way others are. 

I'm not concerned with the 
personal lives of others or run- 
ning to the dean to say "it Is 
my Christian duty to tell you 
. . ." How many times I've 
heard that sickening phrase. 
Just what is our Christian duty 
here and to what extent? 

As a Califorman 1 have been 

Milligan apathy due to 
high cost of involvement 


The following remarks are in 
reference to the fourth para- 
graph of "Human Pollution" in 
the Nov. 27, 1970 Issue. 

1 found the theme of many 
articles In this Issue to be 
concerned with the apathy of 
MilHgan College students, and 
"Human Pollution" was devoted 
to this idea. May I point out 
one small argument for the 
reason why many students do 
not make their personal opin- 
ion public 

It is well kr.own t'.iat because 
of the size of this institution 
there is not much that can be 
said or done without every per- 
son here knowlngabout it sooner 
or later. This in Itself could 
make one cautious about stat- 
ing an opinion, but a worse 
threat is the almost promised 
response. There are certain 
accepted schools of thought a- 
mong this student body and if 
a person should disagree with 
the prevailing opinion, he finds 
himself In immediate danger 
of being "put down" and again, 
because of size, thewhole school 
knows he has been put down. 
Now we have two reasons why 
a timid person might keepquiet. 

The request from "Human 
Pollution" was for the student 
to show some "concern with 
what happens In the world, and 
let outward appearance take 
care of itself." But the before 
mentioned paragraph of this 
same article showed what hap- 
pens when a student dares to 
differ and dares to express their 

dress code: 
coat and tie 

SEWANEE -- Students voted 
to retain their 100-year-old coat 
and tie tradition for classes 
and dining at the University of 
the South, with coeds to wear 
skirts in the same situations. 

The existing dress rules as 
they appear In the student hand- 
book were modtfled (or more 
informal occasions. 

Although much discussion 
preceded the modification al- 
most all the delegates voted to 
maintain the traditional code, 
speaker of the Delegates As- 
sembly, Stephen Zimmerman, 
reported to the faculty.

opinion. Was "the one person" 
congratulated on her strength 
to stand for an opinion? No, 
instead, the one person who did 
something about a belief she 
held was publicly ridiculed. I 
wonder w'hat would have been 
made of the incident in ques- 
tion if the majority of the srud- 
ent body had happened to agree 
with the expressed opinion? 
Perhaps the "one person" would 
have become a leader; admired, 
respected, and congratulated? 
So we are asked to "let out- 
ward appearance take care of 
itself?" In this case and in many 
others, the unacceptable out- 
ward appearance took care of 
the individual. I suggest that 
people will be more willing to 
express themselves when they 
feel that others are more will- 
ing to listen with a mature 
outlook and an open frame of

are but Mllllgan has stifled 
their thought. They have been 
enclosed in a box and Mllllgan

you see, the large srudent turn-

students but no one ever sees

"Rumor Follows Rumor" (E^ekiel 7;26) 

The other day a girl stopped by my of fit e and said, "1 want 
to ask you about a rumor." Before hear! >g what the rumor was 
I found myself warning to ihank her for her attempt to ascertain 
the facts before believing a rumor. 

College campuses like any oiner segment of society tend to 
breed a plethora of rumors, sometimes outrightly false and some- 
time> containing a germ of truth that is hopelessly distorted by 
abnormal growth. Some rumors would die a well deserved death 
if listeners would not take them seriously. Other rumors may in- 
volve the welfare of persons and thus the listener has no alterna- 
tive but to determine the truth of the matter. 

The teacher or administrator in his frantic efforts to prepare 
lectures, grade papers, may come to be seen as working very' dl ~ 
Iigently to keep the lines of communication closed in or.ier to per- 
petrate some conspiracy of demonic proportions. The easiest 
way to settle a rumor is to ask someone who is In a position to 
know the situation, but the willingness to ask presupposes a con- 
fidence in the integrity of the person being asked. 

A few of the logic students stayed after class recently to discuss 
some ways to keep the total college community better informed 
and hence less susceptible to the rumor rash. One student observed, 
'There ought to be a time when students could meet with the ad- 
ministration simply 10 ask questions." With this prompting an 
administration forum has been scheduled for the February 23 con- 
vocation service. 

No miracle* should be expected from any single effort to im- 
prove communications. The Prophet E-eklel reminds us that rumor 
will always follow rumor. Informational rumors are resolved by 
inquiry; rumors which call Into question the integrity of others 
are resolved only by a changed heart.

Students grade profs 
in faculty evaluation 

At the conclusion of their 
fall semester, Milllgan Col- 
lege students were given a 
chance to turn the tables by 
evaluating their professors as 
a result of a joint effort by 
the college's administration 
and Student Government. 

Students graded their pro- 
fessors on a onc-to-flve basis 
over twenty questions con- 
cerning such aspects as effec- 
tiveness of speech, personal 
interest in students, stimula- 
tion of original thought, and 
over-all effectiveness. Ques- 
tions were derived from a 
similar questionnaire used at 
Oklahoma State University. 

The project was co-ordinated 
jointly by the Academic Dean, 
C. Robert Wetzel, and the Stu- 
dent Government Secretary of 
Academic Affairs, Anne Tay-

Milligan enrollment drops 
below seven-hundred fifty 

The drop in enrollment for 
the spring semester this year 
has caused much discussion 
and debate. 

During convocation on Jan- 
uary 21st, Mrs. Phyllis Fon- 
taine replied that 739 students 
were presently enrolled with 
the possibility of a few more 
late registrants raising this 

number to about 750. This num- 
ber compares with 823 enroll- 
ed for last semester. 

Twenty-nine people were 
graduated from Milllgan Col- 
lege which gives a net de- 
crease of 65. This number may 
be accounted for primarily be- 
cause of academic and discipli- 
nary releases, and transfers. 

RETIRED — After serving Milligan as chemistry professor 
since 1964, Dr. Lee Roy Herrdon has retired this semester.

by the Alpha-Omega Players 
from Dallas, Texas, on Tues- 
day, January 1°, 1971, in See-

Written by George Bernard 
Shaw, "Saint Joan" tells the 
story of a simple peasant girl 
whose faith changed the course 
of history. Joan, after receiv- 
ing directions from God in the 
form of voices, led the armies 
of France to victories through- 
out western Europe before she 
was out of her teens. 

After her unsuccessful at- 
tempt to beselge Paris in 
1429, Joan was captured by the 
Burgundians, 6old to the Eng- 
lish, and eventually tried in the 
inquisitorial court at Rouen for 
heresy and sorcery before 

Pierre Gauchon. Refusing to 
recant her beliefs and former 
actions, she was burned at the

Legislature to be held in 

Nashville , Tennessee, Feb- 
ruary 11, 12. and 13. The 
main objective of this con- 
ference Is to present prom- 
inent legislation before re- 
presentatives of colleges and 
universities In Tennessee. 

The House and Senate cham- 
bers In Nashville will be en- 
tirely composed of T.l.S.L. 
delegates who will hear and 
pass bills presented to them 
by their fellow delegates. 

Legislation which is passed 
by this delegation will then 
be referred to the State Legis- 
lature for further considera- 

Council representatives. Bill 
Oates and Jon Smith, are work- 
ing In coordination with Student 
Union manager, Tom Stokes 
to sponsor "An Old Movie 
Night" on February S at 8:30

Faculty evaluations 

(Continued from Page 1) 

were scored at the East Ten- 
nessee State University com- 
puter complex. A read-out was 
taken of the average over the 
first nineteen questions. Also, 
an average was complied over 
all twenty questions which In- 
cluded the score for the over- 
all effectiveness of the Instruc- 

Total average for the entire 
faculty over the first 19 ques- 
tions was 3.607 out of a pos- 
sible 5.000. Total average for 
all twenty questions was 3,612 
out of 5.000. Receiving the low- 
est score, 3.111, was the ques- 
tion concerning the use of vis- 
ual aids. 

Receiving the highest score, 
4.321, was the question about 
the Instructors apparent know- 
ledge of the subject. These 
scores were taken from a total 
number of 2594 evaluations col- 

One reason for the conduc- 
tion of the faculty evaluation 
was that the Instructor could use 
his results as a type of self- 
study to help him Improve his 
teaching. Another reason lsthat 
the evaluation summaries might 
possibly be put on reserve in 
the P. H. Welshimer Library 
for the reference of students 
when choosing their courses. 

However, in order to avoid 
unnecessary student-f acuity- 
administration conflict, theStu- 
dent Government has asked Dean 
Wetzel to allow the faculty to 
make the decision at their next 
meeting concerning making the 
results public. 

When asked how shefeltabout 
the effectiveness of the evalua- 
tion program Anne commented, 
"This program can be success- 
ful only if both students and in- 
structors are willing to be 
honest with themselves and with 
each other." 

Because the education block 
instructors were not Included 
In last semester's program, 
tentative plans are made to 
evaluate those Instructors at 
the mid-term of the current 

Due largely to the impression 
of Mllligan College's evalua- 
tion program, East Tennessee 
State University officials are 
considering conducting a faculty 
evaluation using an expanded 
version of Milllgan's program.

Slimmer employment 
seen for women grads 

By 1980, many women college 
graduates wlllface strong com- 
petition when seeking Jobs that 
have been traditionally held 
by women. 

The Bureau of Labor Sta- 
tistics reports that the in- 
creasing number of women col- 
lege graduates, coupled with 
only a slightly Increasing need 
for elementary and secondary 
ieachers, will bring about this 

BLS predicts a two-thirds 
increase in the number of fe- 
male college graduates In the 
next ten years. (The number of 
male graduates will Increase 
only by one-third.) 

Currently, two out of every 
five professional women are 
employed In elementary and 
secondary education. 

However, the demandfor ele- 
mentary and secondary teach- 
ers is expected to increase 
by only 7.8 percent by 1980. 
This will result In a supply 
of teachers "significantly 
above requirements." 

The Bureau of Labor Sta- 
tistics urges women to "en- 
large the range of occupa- 

tions" which they consider, 
paying particular attention to 
"high-demand" professions. 

The supply of chemists, 
counselors, dietitians, den- 
tists, physicians, and phy- 
sicists is expected to be 
"significantly" below re- 
quirements by 1980. 

Engineers, geologists and 
geophyslcists, and optome- 
trists will also be in short 
supply. However, there are 
less openings here than In the 
professions mentioned above. 

job openings in archi- 
tecture and law are expect- 
ed to be equal to the supply. 
The supply of pharmlclsts will 
be slightly above require- 

In addition to teachers, the 
supply of mathematicians and 
life scientists will far exceed

The second addition to Mil- 
llgan's faculty Is Dr. Richard 
Lura. As a member of the che- 
mistry department,- Dr. Lura 
teaches physics, chemistry,

strumental analyslB. He re- 
ceived his degrees from the 
University of Wisconsin and

Dr. Lura is looking forward 
to the completion of~Milligan's 
new science building. He feels 
the new labs with their mod- 
ern facilities and equipment 
will cause science, to become 
much more popular with stu- 
dents at Mllligan. 

Professor Lura is pleased 
with Milllgan's smallslze after 
attending large universities. He 
is impressed with the friendli- 
ness on campus and is glad 
he will have the opportuniry 
to know each of his students

About Semester Break 

After experiencing the first altered schedule of culminating the 
fall semester before the Christmas break, Milligan students have 
recognized distinct advantages to the new system. No longer must 
the responsibilities of academic work carry over into and through 
a time meant for much needed relaxation. The Christmas vacation 
can be much more free and enjoyable without the clinging pressure 
of papers yet to be finished and exams yet to be taken upon return- 
ing to Milligan. 

Last year many of us shared the unpleasant experience of two re- 
latively worthless weeks of trying to pick up the pieces from tbe 
weeks of sudy before vacation, in order to continue as if there had 
been no interruption. These very real difficulties have been ef- 
ficiently eliminated and have been replaced by the opportunity 
of beginning a new semester honestly refreshed and with renewed 
desire for achievement of higher educational goals. 

Possible disadvantages may have been present in the initial 
trial of the new schedule. The summer was shortened somewhat, 
and some students lost some valuable employment time. This year, 
however, the summer vacation will be as long as before with the 
additional advantage of an earlier opportunity to seek and begin 
summer employment. 

It may have been necessary last semester for some teachers- 
to alter their provious lesson plans. Students also found that their 
usual patterns of study had to undergo some modificlatlon. 

We feel that the problems wrought by the new schedule last 
semester were a necessary experience in adaptation, and that 
the projected advantages far outweigh the initial disadvantages. 


Students at Moorhead 
now serve as advisors 

A program that seeks to pro- 
vide student help as an ad- 
junct to the regular faculty 
academic advisor system at 
Moorhead State College has 
been approved by MSC Facul- 
ty Senate for a trial run 
winter quarters. 

The program was Introduced 
through the Student Senate last 
spring, where it was supported 
strongly, and many of the work- 
ing details were developed bya 
Student Senate-named student 
committee over the summer 
with the aid of Mrs. Lois Sel- 
berg, coordinator of Special 
Projects, and Mike Pehler, as- 
sistant in the Dean of Student 
Personnel Services Office. 

In presenting the proposed 
program to the Faculty Senate, 
Mrs. Selberg emphasized that 
its backers envision it as 
supplemental to the overworked 
faculty advisory program be- 
ing used now and do not in- 
tend that faculty advisors be 
replaced. Qualified upper class 
students will serve as advisors 
for $50 a quarter. 

She said students picked as 
advisors would work essent- 
ially with freshmen and soph- 
omores and would provide ad- 
vice about general studies, gen- 
eral academic procedural 
matters and offer some broad 
general counselling about spec- 
ific major fields they arepart- 
icularly acquainted with. 

The Sense of B.O. 

Bill Oates 

It seems that the number of 
Milligan students isdiminish- 
ing. Whether or not this is 
a drastic situation which should 
merit panic or if this is just 
an idle period In an enroll- 
ment cycle, I choose not to 
discuss. However, 1 have a 
great deal of concern for the 
reason as to why there has 
been such a turnover. 

Some excuses for not com- 
ing to Milligan may stem from 
a financial standpoint. Drop- 
ping a thousand dollars a se- 
mester may comedeartomany. 
But with the high price tag on 
everything from chewing gum 
to the prime Interest rate, Mil- 
ligan has been victimized byin- 
flation and must adjust to keep 
her nose above the financial 
drowning line. Therefore, 
school costs will continue to 
rise, as does the cost of liv- 
ing. Hence, the students will 
have to become more resource- 
ful In finding those few sum- 
mer Jobs and fight harder for 
educational loans and grants. 

The curriculum and facilities 
are limited, one would say. 
Both of these problems are 
being remedied, but still, in a 
small liberal arts college, the 
course of study will have to 
be limited. In Choosing a school, 
the prospective student should 
be sure that the institution fits 
his needs. 

Despite what excuse might be 
given by the student for being 
discontent with Milligan, one 
pet gripe seems tojecur quite 
frequently. Too many people 
plead that there "is nothing to 
do." This is the fault of both 
the school leaders and the 
students themselves. It is they, 
along with the clubs and other 
campus organizations, who 
have killed the social life at 

Unless many of the clubs 
have become secret groups, 
with unlisted meeting times, 
they too are becoming as 
close to extinction as the buf- 
falo. Check the weekly calendar 
for the listing of all the clubs, 
iraternities, and so forth, who 
have meetings this week or 
who have scheduled social 

As far as social life at Mil- 
ligan Is concerned, there seems 
to be a cry for something to do 
but no one volunteering to take 
any initiative and get something 
started. Are we running out of 
creative, industrious people, 
who can organize and entertain 
the masses? Or, has every- 
one joined the crowd that cries 
that they are too lazy to enter- 
tain themselves? 

If we were all at a large 
university, the problems of a 
social life would be fixed. A 
select few would entertain the 
whole with seemingly unlim- 
ited funds. However, indiv- 
idual creativity Is at a min- 
imum and a flock of sheep 
follow along with whatever 
events are laid before them. 

To put It another way, Mil- 
ligan does not have a lot of so- 
cial affairs money, but If the 
right people got together, in- 
quired and planned, there 

could be a full slate of so- 
cial events at the school. 

Finally, a serious problem 
which causes students to leave 
Milligan. is its role asa small, 
liberal arts college, with tem- 
perant policies and religious 
influence. This may seem like 
a page from an old school cat- 
alogue, but I feel that Mll- 
ligan's middle - of - the- road 
stance, its bridge between the 
secular and the sacred, should 
be Its calling card. 

People left Milligan last se- 
mester because their radical 
or liberal ways conflicted with 
this school's conservative 
ways. Others returned to Bible 
college because they were dis- 
gusted with the liberalism and 
worldllness of many. It is a 
pity that all types of people 
and their beliefs cannot func- 

tion together in this atmos- 

AH in all, 1 like the old 
adage that you get out of some- 
thing as much as you put in. 
For all the reasons, however 
large or small, people should 
not be waiting to be educated 
and enlightened by Milligan. 
But the responsibility should be 
a Joint effort of all the college, 
individuals and organized 
groups, who academically 
advance and socially mature 
the student body. 

We students should not de- 
pend entirely on Milligan for 
educating and entertaining us. 
Rather, there should be a Joint 
effort between the individual 
students and the campus or- 
ganizations to provide a social 
life that would be beneficial 
to the entire student body. 


Dean's Corner 

Dean C. Robert Wetzel 

1 am pleased to take this occasion to reco gn ize those Milligan 
Students whose grade-point averages place them on the Dean's 
List for the Fall Semester of the 1970-71 school year. The First 
Dean's List is composed of students whose semester grade-point 
averages were 3.75 to 4.00. A student must have had a 3.5 to 3.749 
to be placed on the Second Dean's List, The faculty and adminis- 
tration of Milligan College extend their congratulations to these 
students who have strived for excellence and achieved It.

Human Pollution learned today that Dr. Johnson has hired the 
services of a family counselling service to help improve Inter- 
personal relations between members of the Mllligan family. Their 
preliminary assessment of our situation may be of interest to our 

1) Communication between the generations is a definite pro- 
blem, especially between the older children and their parents, 
neither of whom appears to trust the other. Conversations between 
members of these two groups are spiced with comments such as 
"You're not going to write this In the newspaper, are you?" and 
"You never let me borrow the car." 

2) The situation at meal times Is far from Ideal, parents and 
children sit in isolated groups and, except in rare cases, do not 
speak to each other. Children must serve themselves after their 
parents have been served. 

3) However, overall the situation is not too bleak, because, as 
we all know, "The family that prays together, stays together," 
and the Mllligan family prays together twice a week, attendance

The Human Pollution consistency award goes this week to B. 
J. Moore, for stating in convocation that we would get a new dish- 
washer for the cafeteria as soon as theold one became Inadequate — 
this announcement was made the other day after the dishwasher ran 
out of hot water and refused to wash any of the lunch plates. 


What better time than the first issue of the now not-so-new year 
to consider the subject most vital to our development as individ- 
uals and as a school, school spirit? Unfortunately, spirit at the 
last two home games has been good but, once having set our hand 
to the plow, we shall harangue you about the need to support Our 
Buffs anyway. 

Anyone who regularly attended last year'shome games has noticed 
(if she was re-elected to this year's cheerleading squad) that at- 
tendence Is much better this year. But before we sit back and gloat, 
let us take a look at some of the possible reasons for our increased 

1) Maybe the school enrollment has Increased? 

2) Maybe more basketball players are going steady? 

3) Maybe last year students stayed in and studied but this year 
they are not, leading not only to increased attendance but also to a 
lower academic level of our student body which is nothing to gloat 

4) Maybe last year we were all over-whelmed by the varied social 
life Mllligan offered us but this year we are older and more mature 
and better able to find time for the things that count? 

5) Maybe we have all donated money to the freshman basket- 
ball team and "Where your treasure Is, there shall your heart be

So vou see. Buffs, we have not really come so f-ir after all, but 
must all work harder to really support our team. Go Buffs

A recent issue of TIMI. Ma- 
gazine (Jan. 18, 1971) carries 
an Interesting report of the un- 
earthing of an ancient ceme- 
tery by a construction crew In 
Jerusalem engaged In excavat- 
ing for a new apartment com- 

One o( the bodies, well pre- 
served In a stone sarcophagus 
and easily Identified because of 
inscriptions thereon, was that 
of a certain '"John" a Hebrew 
who had been crucified because 
of participating In a rebellion 
against Roman authority some- 
time during the first cen- 
tury A.D, 

The most interesting part of 
this discovery is that the 7 
inch nail, which penetrated the 
feet of the victim, was still in 
place; and that It had been dri- 
ven Into the side of the feet 
rather than through the top. 
This discovery has raised 
certain questions as to the man- 
ner of crucifixion. Although it 
Is known that thousands died by 
crucifixion IntheRomanEmpire 
before Constantine (313-337) 
outlawed this cruel form of exe- 
cution, very little Is known of 
the position of the victim Im- 
paled on the cross; Indeed this 
discovery is the first physical 
evidence known to date of an 
actual crucifixion. It suggests 
that the victim's legs were 
doubled-np beneath him lnsome- 
what of a squatting position 
rather than being straightened 
out as in the traditional pic- 
ture of the crucifixion of Jesus. 
Physiologists have long 
pointed out that the tradition- 
ally conceived manner of the 
crucifixion places such pres- 
sures on the lung cavity of any 
victim whose weight is sus- 
pended from out-srretched arms 
that the breathing would be so 
seriously impaired as to cause 
death by suffocation relatively 
soon. Yet it was not uncom- 
mon for victims to live two 
or three days on the cross, laps- 
ing into insanity before expir- 
ing. The position of the victim 
suggested by the discovery of 
this body would prolong both the 
life and the suffering of the 

While this discovery may re- 
quire that we adjust our men- 
tal-picture of the crucifixion 
of Jesus Christ, it does not 
present any problem so far 
as details in the Biblical 
account of the crucifixion are 
concerned. Nor does It carry 
any theological significance. 
It Is another example of how 
contemporary discovery con- 
tinues to shed light on events 
coming to us out of the past.

Dear Editor, 

In the article on Page 3 of 
the December II Issue of the 
STAMPEDE headlined, "Five 
Students Suspended", we feel 
that you failed to fulfill your 
journalistic responsibility of 
accurate and unbiased report- 

1) You were presented an 
article for publication concern- 
ing the disciplinary action which 
contained statements which 
raised doubts about the legiti- 
macy of the proceedings. You 
promised to verify these 

2) You failed to contact 
sources who could have veri- 
fied these statements, and you 
and the assistant editor wrote 
and published another article 
which completely Ignored these 

3) By failing to ascertain 
the facts you have missed your 
opportunity to replace rumor 
with the true story. 

4) You failed to investigate 
the following statements: 

a) that the parents of one 
of the students petitioned with 
the students for a disciplinary 
hearing. The parent's reason 
for desiring the hearing was to 


postpone suspension for three 
weeks (until the present sem- 
ester) to save the family fin- 
ancial loss. 

b) that one memberof theDis- 
cipllnary Committee advised 
rwo of the students that an ap- 
peal to the Committee would 
probably Jeopardize their read- 
mission to the College. 

c) that after their discussion 
with this member of the Dis- 
ciplinary Committee, the

not their request for a hearing 
had been granted but went home.

service by printing a whitewash-

Grant from 
is received 

MlUlgan College has received 
an $ 1 1 ,886 grant from the gov- 
ernment for educational equip- 

The g ra nt was awarded 
through Title Six of the Higher 
Education Act. The Act sup- 
plies educational equipment for 
colleges. The amount granted 
must be matched by the school. 

Some of themoneywillbeused 
in supplying equipment for the 
Curriculum Center. A great deal 
of the money will be used In ac- 
quiring science materials and 
equipment. Almost every de- 
partment of the school will bene- 

A few o( the things to be pur- 
chased are; an electronic print- 
ing calculator lor the psy- 
chology department, a com- 
pulogical computer for the math 
department, films for the hum- 
anities department, recordings 
for the sociology department, 
and microscopes for the biology 

chemistry course, instrumen- 
tal analysis. The purpose of 
the course Is to acquaint the 
student with the advanced 
equipment used In chemistry. 

The course covers the infra- 
red spectrascope.gas chromat- 
ograph. and ultra-violet spec- 
rrascope, giving the student 
some idea how these machines 
work, so that he "won't be 
dumbfounded by a panel of 
lights" If a machine were to 
break down. 

The ski class is the largest 
of the new classes, with over 
ninety students enrolled. Stu- 
dents spend each Tuesday 
afternoon at Sugar Mountain 
ski resort, where they take a 
two-hour lesson from the Sugar 
Mountain instructors. The ski 
class counts as one semester 
of sophomore P.E. 

The drug education course, 
taught by Dr. Lindeman, will 

use guest lecturers and films 
extensively to achieve its pur- 
pose of acquainting the student 
with the biological, sociolo- 
gical, psychological andelhlcal 
aspects of drug use. 

The drug education class 
will also make use of an ex- 
tensive library of prlnledgov- 
emment materials which has 
been compiled over the past 
semester, The emphasis of the 
materials used in this class 
Is not so much "don't use It" 
as information about what hap- 
pens when drugs are used. 

Dr. Tsao is teaching a sem- 
inar In law this semester. Its 
purpose is to prepare students 
for graduate work either In 
law or In government and dip- 
lomacy. The seminar includes 
Introductions to both American 
and International law and 
stresses documental and legal

In a report Issued December 
3, the Carnegie Commission on 
Higher Education stated that 
540 colleges and universities 
are "in financial difficulty." 

Another 1,000 schools are 
"heading for financial trou- 
ble,"' while 800 Institutions are 
"not in trouble." 

Case studies of 41 schools 
provide the basis for the es- 
timates given above. 

Schools which have curtail- 
ed services regarded as im- 
portant parts of their programs 
because of financial problems 
are classified as being "In 
financial difficulty." 

Institutions "headed for 
trouble" arc- still meeting cur- 

rent responsibilities without 
reducing Important services. 
However, these schools are 
not sure that they can continue 
to do so. 

Colleges "not In trouble" are 
able to plan for growth with 
some assurance, at the ne 
time giving full support to c ir- 
rent programs. 

"The essence of the prob- 
lem," the Commission re- 
ports, "is that costs and In- 
come are both rising, but costs 
are rising at a steady or 
slowly growing rate . . . where- 
as Income is growing at a 
declining rate ..." 

During the 1960's, total ex- 
penditures increased at .. rate

of 8.2 percent per student per 
year. Tuition Is currently in- 
creasing at about 7.5 percent

schools feel they cannot con- 
tinue to Increase tuition this 

Five Important factors are 
Involved in Increased ex- 
penditures: general Inflat- 
ion; faculty salaries; student 
aid; cost of campus distur- 
bances; and growth in program 
research, and aspirations. 

The commission points out 
that the public's reaction a- 
galnst campus disturbances has 
adversely affected financial 
support for all colleges, not 
only those which have had riots 
or demonstrations.

Open dorms at Minnesota 
meet overwhelming approva 

(I.P.)-Early this year there was 
a great deal of speculation 
about the University of Minne- 
sota's then-new policy which 
allows students to have guests 
of either sex visit them In their 
dorms at any hour. 

Proponents of the so-called 
"24-hour option" or "open 
dorm policy" argued at the lime 
that students deserved more 
freedom, were ready for more 
responsibility and that such 
an arrangement would allow a 
feeling of community to de- 
velop In the dorms. 

Opponents of the policy 
feared it would Interfere with 
students' studies, it might lead 
to promiscuity, and that the Un- 
iversity should be no more 
lenient than a student's parents. 
The 24-hour policy is in ef- 
fect for the majority of the 
Twin Cities campus dorm re- 
sidents this year. Studies made 
available this fall indicated that 
few parents oppose the policy 
— which is neither as wide- 
open as many assume, nor Is 
it put to maximum use by stu- 

When students applied for 
dorm space for the 1970- 
71 school year they chose one 
of the three types of visit- 
ation policies available: 24- 
hour visitation, limited visit- 
ation (until midnight weekdays, 
open weekends ) or no visit- 
ors of the opposite sex at any 

Any student under 21 years 
of age (about 84 per cent of 
the dorm population) needed 
his parent's signature on his 
dorm contract to confirm his 
visitation choice. 

Nearly two-thirds of the 
4,038 students living in dorms 
live under the 24-nour option; 
about 80 per cent of these stu- 
dents are under 21 years old 
and have parental permission. 
Almost one-third have chosen 
limited visitation and some two 
per cent opted for no visitation. 
The usual way the 24-hour 
option Is used "Is for a dorm 
resident to Invite someonefrom 
one of his classes over and 
they study together until, say 
mld-nlght or 2 a.m.," ac- 
cording to Donald Zander, as- 
sistant vice president for stu- 
dent affairs. 

The student's guest arrives 
at the dorm. Is met by the re- 
sident and escorted to the re- 
sident's room. Guests are not 
free to wander around the halls. 
Each floor In a dorm has a 
graduate - student resident 
counselor, part ol whose duty 
it la to watch lor violations 
of visitation rules. 

None ol the University's eight 
dorms operates entirely under 
one option. Instead, units wlth- 

ln each dorm operate separate- 
ly under the policy chosen by 
Its students. For example. 
Frontier Hall, with 10 units 
has seven with 24-hour visit- 
ation, two with limited visita- 
tion, some none at all. 

Students with dlfierent op- 
tions live at opposite ends ol 
the floor with a counselor re- 
siding between tne two group- 
ings. Of the 96 units or floors 
within the elghi-aorm system, 
50 have 24-hour visitation, 40 
have limited and six have no 

Each dorm still maintains 
dorm contracts, the University 
had virtually no involvements 
in the choice. 

Last February, however, 
when the options were being 
made available for the first 
time, the Universltyhadagreat 
deal more involvement.

After student governing 
boards within each dorm

responsibilities that went with 
each type of visitation, a vote 
was taken by secret ballot. A

Three students are elected 
to Otterbein College Board 

WestervlUe, Ohio - (I. P.) 
With the election of three stu- 
dents to the Board of Trustees 
last fall, Otterbein College be- 
came unique among American 
colleges and universities. 

Otterbein is the only school 
In the nation with such stu- 
dent representation on Its high- 
est governing body and the only 
one to place voting students on 
all campus councils and com- 

The governance program, the 
result of over two years of study, 
also Includes the election of 
three faculty members to the 
Board. The plan also calls fora 
College Senate as the major 
policy making body of the Col- 
lege. The three newly-elected 
student trustees are also mem- 
bers of the College Senate. 

The three student trustees, 
Cd Vaughan, Jim Sylvester, and 
Iirian Napper, were very pleas- 
ed the way in which the trustees 
received them at the first meet- 
ing at which student and faculty 
trustees were present. 

The older trustees not only 
acknowledged their presence, 
but actively sought their parti- 
cipation. The trustees paid par- 
ticular attention to their com- 
ments. To quote Jim Sylvester, 
"I honestly couldn't have asked 
it to be any letter than It was." 

The three student trustees 

were impressed by the willing- 
ness of the Board to listen to 
them and also by the willing- 
ness of the Board to accept 
changes. It must be remem- 
bered that the Idea of student 
trustees was conceived and im- 
plemented by the Board. 

The entire governance plants 
based on the premise that now 
the students and faculty are 
administrators. Panicularly, it 
Is the roleof the students topro- 
pose the changes and reforms 
they want. The Board will re- 
view all proposals only when 
they are accompanied bya com- 
prehensive plan for their imple- 

It Is no longer the job of the 
students to submit proposals 
and the job of the administra- 
tion to implementtheproposals. 

Now the students must look at 
the proposal, study it from every 
angle, see the consequences of 
it, find statistics on which to 
base it, and then only alter 
they have researched it well, 
and if the need for the change 
appears to be valid, should they 
submit it to the Board. 

The Trustees are deeply de- 
voted to Otterbein. They < on- 
tributc a great deal of their 
time and energy, but they want 
results for their efforts. They 
are not satisfied with student 
pi.jposaD; they want complete 

plans on how these proposals 
can be carried out. The students 
have been challenged. 

Each student trusteeworkson 
a committee of the Board. Brian 
Napper's committee Is Student 
Affairs. Among other things it 
has discussed the Campus Cen- 
ter Programming Board, Inter- 
cultural Center, the Panhellenic 
Council, women's hours, and the 
dress code. 

Jim Sylvester works on the 
Building and Grounds Com- 
mittee. His committee has dis- 
cussed theaircondltioningof the 
campus, the new gymnasium 
proposal, and also decided not 
to explore the construction of 
new houslngforwomen until stu- 
dents decide If they want to 
continue to live on campus. The

The Church, Alumni, and pub- 
lic Relations Committee is the 
area InwhlchEd Vaughan works. 
One of the most important re- 
commendations made by the 
committee was that the college 
direct increased attention to- 
ward the rapidly rising need for 
student financial assistance. 

The chief concern of thecom- 
mlttee Is getting money into the 
college without increasing stu- 
dent tuition. 

Fd Vaughan stated that the 
most Important work must be 
done In the apanments, divi-

Marijuana issue reviewed 

In an effort to cool the heal- 
ed controversy which sur- 
rounds marijuana, diverse 
studies have been Initiated 
within the past few years to 
study both the physiological 
and psychological effects of 

Heading up the consolida- 
tion of the scattered research 
in these two areas Is the Cen- 
ter for Studies of Narcotics 
and Drug Abuse (CSNDA), a 
United States government 
agency. The National Institute 
of Mental Health (NIMH) has 
sponsored the bulk of the scien- 
tific research concerning the 
possible mental or physical 
effects caused by marijuana. 

Undoubtedly, one ol the fore- 
most reasons for the sudden 
overwhelming public concern 
for marijuana research Is 
what statisticians have termed 
a "remarkable increase" in 
the usage of marijuana in just 
the past few years. 

According lo recent Gallup 
surveys conducted on Ameri- 
can college campuses, more 
than four out of every ten col- 
lege students say they have 
tried marijuana, almost double 
the raie of a year ago, and over 
eight times ihc percentage re- 
corded in a 1967 survey. 

In addition, the poll showed 
thai more than a fourth ot the 
sample had used the drug dur- 
ing the thirty days prior to the 
survey and that seventeen per 
cent used ihe drug on an aver- 
age of once a week. 

Recently the i SN! )A sub- 
mitted a report on its pur- 
greiis to the Congress. From 
tills report and others ^ub- 
niilted by private research 
centers, many new facts have 

been gathered concerning 
questions about the physical 
aspects of marijuana use. 

Concerning the possibility of 
brain damage, Dr. Sidney Co- 
hen, former head of NIMH re- 
search reported memory lapse 
become more frequent among 
marijuana users as time goes 
on and these lapses also tend 
to last longer. 

However, In experiments 
also conducted by NIMH, re- 
searchers have found that over 
fifty per Cent of the active com- 
ponents in marijuana left the 
body in two and one half days 
and ninety per cent had left 
the body in seven days. Ac- 

Mercy Men 
to perform 

Two popular concerts per- 
formed by the Impressions on 
February 23 and Mercy Menon 
April 2 are scheduled in Mll- 
llgan's spring concert series. 
Sponsored by the Student 
Government Association, ad- 
mission to the concerts will 
be free for Milligan students. 
Finance of the Mercy Men con- 
cert will be shared by the 
S. G. A, and the senior class. 
As a well-known popular re- 
cording group, the Impressions 
have recorded several nation- 
ally successful albums over 
the past few years. The Men > 
Men appeared last year in a 
concert :>punsi,ioJ h\ the i la^i

cording to the researchers this 
means that many of the mental 
effects of marijuana are mere- 
ly temporary. 

Physical addiction has also 
been a heavily debated topic. 
Scientists recognize two tests 
for addiction: (1) Does a user 
suffer real physical pain when

In an effort to Improve the 
effectiveness of the P.H. Wel- 
shfmer Library, Student Gov- 
ernment Association (S.C.A.) 
President John Rohrbaugh has 
established a commission con- 
sisting of students to study Its 
practices and procedures. 

Although the main function 
of the Presidential Library 
Commission will be to study 
such areas as use of employ- 
ees, system o£ check-out, un- 
limited faculty check out, and 
stacking of periodicals, the 
commission will also make 
3 '^ees;ions lor improvement, 

Findings and results of com- 
mission will be presented to 
John Rohrbaugh, who will In 
return forward the commis- 
sions work to the student 
government Executive Council 

and finally to the Legislative 
Council of the S.G.A. 

After discussion of the com- 
missions conclusions theS.GA, 
will make Its formal sugges- 
tions to the faculry library 

Students serving on the com- 
mission are Charlie Alderman, 
chairman, Mark Makoski.Mel- 
vln Morton, Penny Phillips and 
Secretary of Academic Affairs, 
Anne Taylor. 

Earlier this year, the sru- 
dent government suggested the 
hours of the library' be changed 
to allow the library' to remain 
open Sunday evening until 10 
p.m. This suggestion was ap- 
proved by the faculty library 
committee and the policy was 
put into effect.

Nation's elite meet 
at prayer breakfast 

The Nineteenth Annual 
National Prayer Breakfast was 
held February 2. 1971, at 8:00 
a.m. In the Washington Hilton 
in Washington, D. C. 

Over 3500 people from all 
over the UnltedStatesandmany 
foreign countries met that 
morning. Every cabinet mem- 
ber and a majority of the mem- 
bers of the House and Senate 
attended. There was an ex- 
cellent representation of both 
the country's and the world's 
leadership at the breakfast. 

The main topic of the pray- 
er breakfast was bridges. 
These bridges were to be bridg- 
es oi social, religious, and 
psychological communication. 
Chief justice Warren Burger 
of the Supreme Court gave an 
exc e llent speech on the topic 
for the Message of the Service. 

The program conslstedof the 
opening prayer, the breakfast, 
a message from the House 
prayer breakfast group, a read- 
ing from the Old Testament, a 
message from the Senate pray- 
er breakfast group, a reading 
from the New Testament, a 
prayer for national leaders, 
the message by Chief Justice 
Burger, a short talk by the 
President, a closing prayer, 
and a closing song, the last 
verse of "America". 

Among those who partici- 
pated In the service were Sena- 
tor Everett Jordan, Secretary 
of Labor J, D. Hodgson. Rep- 
resentative C. V. Montgomery, 
Senator 'Clifford Hansen, and 
Speaker of the House Carl Al- 

The Milligan College Con- 
cert Choir sang several num- 
bers while the guests were 
eating and sang two more af- 
ter the President had entered 
the room. Some of the sungs 
the choir sang were "Lord 

Now Victorious' , "Amazing 
Grace", and "Oh Happy Day." 
It was hoped that through 
this meeting better relations 
could be established among the 
leaders of the country and the 
world, and, more importantly. 
It was hoped better relations 
could be established between 
the leaders and God. 

Students of MllUgan College 
were treated to an excellent 
concert Tuesday, February 9, 
by the West Virginia Percus- 
sion Ensemble. 

The ensemble was a group 
from West Virginia University 
which tours several statesgiv- 
lng performances with varied 
percussion instruments. Philip 
J. Fainl, the head of the Per- 
cussion Department at West 
Virginia University, was their 

In the second part of their 
program they presented ar- 
rangements of "Does Anybody 
Really Know What Time It Is," 
"Raindrops Keep Fallln' onmy 
Head", "MacArthur Park", 
and a special piece composed 
by the ensemble. 

The Percussion Ensemble 
responded with two encore num- 
bers: Their interpretations of 
"Lucretia Mac-Evil" and 
"What the World Needs Now". 

The thirteen members of the 
ensemble, twelve men and one 
woman, could play over 100 
Instruments. They demonstrat- 

ed their talents by playing ar- 
rangements of "Smiling 
Phases", a Bach Fugue, and 
a medley of tunes from the 
musical "Promises, Pro- 

mises". They also perform- 
ed an original composition for 
the piano entitled "Muses 1" 
and their interpretation of an 
African lolk song. 

Allclasses must meet 
during finals week 

The new procedure con- 
cerning exam week, which 
was put into effect last se- 
mester, will become the stand- 
ard policy for future exam 
weeks at Milligan. 

In the past, Milligan stu- 
dents have been able to mani- 
pulate their exam schedule to 
allow for an earlier departure 
from campus. No longer will 
this be possible, as the new 
exam policy requires that all 
professors meet their classes 
at the time scheduled during 
exam week, whether a final 
Is to be given or not. 

Marijuana study review 

deprived of the drug? (2) Does 
It take increasing amounts of 
the drug to produce the de- 
sired "high"? 

Among scientists, the gen- 
eral opinion is that there exists 
no evidence that American 
marijuana users In general suf- 
fer withdrawal symptoms when 
deprived of the drug. As for 
the second test for addiction. 
Dr. Henry Brill, head of the 
American Medical Society's 
committee on drug abuse, has 
announced that there is "clear 
evidence that tolerance to 
marijuana Increases with heavy 

On the other hand. Dr. Julius 
Axelrod, 1970 Nobel Prizewin- 
ner in medicine reports that 
many people who use the drug 
achieve their "high" from a_ 
smaller amount — not greater 
— as time goes hy. 

On the behavioral and social 
aspects of marijuana, discus- 
sion has been equally heated. 
Many people feel as does Har- 
ry J. Anslinger, head of the 
United States Bureau of Nar- 
cotics, that marijuana is "a 
scourge that undermines its 
victims and degrades ihem 
mentally, morally, and pliy-

Defenders of marijuana are 
equally outspoken. They deny 
the existence of any such link 
between the drug and social 
personal debilitation and feel 
as does popular philosopher 
Alan Watts that smoking mari- 
juana can be "a profound re- 
ligious experience." 

One main argument being 
debated is that use of mari- 
juana leads to the use of other 
more powerful drugs such as 
heroin. One study conducted 
upon some 2,000 opiate addicts 
found that most of the addicts 
had once been marijuana 
smokers. In opposition to 
these Imdlngs Dr. Stanley F.. 
Grupp of Illinois State Univer- 
sity reports few links between 
pot and heroin users. 

Another much debated con- 
tention thai marijuana can 
cause mental or emotional 
breakdowns lit otherwise 
healthy individuals is not at 
present supported by Ameri- 
can research. 

Currently, many scientists 
arc beginning to emphasise 
more the extremely critical 
importance ul dosage in mari- 

juana experimentation. Dr. 
Reese T. Jones, the psychia- 
trist in charge of the mari- 
juana research program at 
Langley Porter Neuropsycnia- 
tric Institute in San Francisco 
reports that when the dosage 
of the drug is at or below the 
level commonly available in 
this country, "adverse react- 
ions are rare. It is only at the 
higher dosage level that anx- 
iety reactions occur." 

Most scientists realize that 
marijuana research is really 
only just beginning and rhat 
future research will probably 
find the drug to be neither as 
harmful nor as beneficial as 
popularly claimed. "Drug stu- 
dies are always fuzzy," Dr. 
Jones remarks, "and people 
will always be able to pick 
out the points they like and 
ignore the rest." 

More than likely, as social 
attitudes change and scientific 
knowledge increases, the pre- 
sent dispute over marijuana 
may come to seem ridiculous. 
"Maybe 30 years from now," 
Dr. Grupp believes, "we might 
look back on this controversy 
as one big put-on."

In an interview. Dean C. 
Robert Wetzel said that exam 
week has always existed at 
Milligan. but was not strict- 
ly enforced at all times. In 
an effort to alleviate this pro- 
blem, the academic commit- 
tee sought last year to extend 
classes one more week and 
thus do away with an exam 
week. However, student opin- 
ion appeared to be strongly 
against this type of proce- 
dure, and the old exam week 
policy was re-established. 

Dean Wetzel feels that Mil- 
ligan must keep the exam sche- 
dule In order to eliminate 
conflicts which arise from 
Individual rescheduling of 
exams and to fulfill the re- 
quired number of class days 
as set forth by the accrediting 

In Dean Wetzel's estimation, 
the exam week policy was fol- 
lowed fairly well last semes- 
ter and will be repeated again 
this semester. All students 
and faculty are encouraged to 
follow this new guideline and 
to make their plans accord-

"Revelation and the Norm of 

Christian I (pcrlei e." 

At this meeting. Dr. jauncey 
said that God is "anxious" 
to reveal himself to man, and 
pit king up the signal 

lends us is the norm 
for Christianity. 

According to Jauncey, when 
a man picks up these signals, 
he "confronts" God. After 
thisconfrontation, man no long- 
er doubts and questions: he is 
"certain" of God. 

No theoretical proofs can 
convince man of (iod, said 
Jauncey. Only through the ex- 
perience of confrontation can 
man become certain of God. 

Drawing from his exper- 
ience asaguldedmlssllc scien- 
tist at White Sands, New Mex- 
ico, in the 1950's, Jauncey 
pointed out that the same Is true 
in science. What is theore- 
tically proven, may be prac- 
tically false. 

Faith, to Jauncey, is the 
urge to seek out the signals 
which God is sending to man. 
This faith may be brought 
about by external influences, 
butonly a personal confronta- 
tion with God can bring about

lecture. Dr. Jauncey said that 
nothing but "red-hot confronta- 
tion" with God can save the 
restoration movement from 
the "disaster" of becoming 
just another crystallized de- 

Jauncey also said that he 
sees no conflict between the 
Bible and science on the crea- 
tion of the world. He believes 
that the Genesis account gives 
the actual facts of creation. 

Speaking in Convocation, 
February 9, Dr. Jauncey em- 
phasized the use of each man's 
inner powers. 

Referring to Jesus' parable 
of the talents, Jauncey said 
that it is Impossible to be a 
surrendered Christian without 
using one's powers to the full- 

Jauncey pointed out that when 
a person is converted, his inn- 
er powers, and even his entire 
being, are enhanced. The new 
Christian's being becomes 
"pregnant" with possibUUy. 

He concluded by challenging 
Mllligan students to use their 
expanded inner resources by

Message Beyond the Man 

In a previous editorial concerning the (all Christian Emphasis 
Week, it was noted thai there are a variety of approaches to Chris- 
tianity and that it Is good for a person to be confronted with 
manners of expressing Christianity which are different from his 
own. Following the second Christian Emphasis Week which has 
just taken place, perhaps the individuality In approaches to 
Christianity needs to be reemphasized. 

People can learn much from each other which they cannot 
learn alone. Fellowship Is a vitally significant aspect of Christian 
life, for through fellowship with other Christians one's own faith 
and beliefs are fortified. The Christians with whom one has 
fellowship need not be all alike. In fact, association with dif- 
ferent types of people and with different expressions of Chris- 
tianity helps one to grow. 

What can be learned from another Christian, however, does 
not exist In the person himself. The thrust of Christianity Is 
not necessarily In the way In which it is expressed or In an in- 
dividual human personality. The power of Christianity Is In the 
person of Jesus Christ, Rejection of any person is not a Chris- 
tian act, but rejection of another christian is a failure to ac- 
cept not only a personality but a message which Christ may 
have to offer In a particular manner through the person. 

Christianity must be emphasized dally in one's life, not mere- 
ly during three days set aside as a "Christian Emphasis Week.*' 
It also must be shared, and sharing involves a willing effort 
among all people.

There has been a lot of 
talk this year about student 
apathy at Milligan College. The 
subject has been pretty well 
worn out and to write more on 
the topic might prove far from 
beneficial. However, there Is 
one other area, that of relig- 
ious apathy, which should be 

It appears that while support 
for MUligan's basketball team 
grows, which Is good; support 
for religious activities de- 
clines. Last week, Milligan had 
the spring semester's half of 
Christian Emphasis Week, but 
from apparent lackof emphasis 
and enthusiasm, all the ac- 
tivities could have been held in 
one day. 

Sherwood Elliot Wirt, editor 
of one of the few good pieces 
of Christian journalism, pro- 
bably would have had a better 
receptlon at a bar mitzvah. 
With the exception of a few 

meetings in the dorm lobbies 
after women's hours, Mr. 
Wirt saw little of MUligan's 
student body, especially when 
compared to the group that 
was here In the fall. 

What was It that made Mr. 
Wirt so unappealing to the stu- 
dents, while the' Exkurslor.s 
were readily accepted? No 
doubt it was student reaction 
to what the student saw in 
convocation. The Exkursions 
were good, while Mr. Wirt 
appeared to be just another 
preacher, like so many that 
have been listened to twice 
a week for the past year, or 
how ever long a student has 
been at Milligan. 

The good and bad points as 
to how beneficial compulsary 
convocation Is to a student's 
liberal arts education, are not 
what I wish to discuss here. 

it is my hope that one might 
consider how beneficial com- 
pulsary convocation is In In- 
fluencing a student's religious 
outlook and activity. After all. 
Christian education is the hope 
of the world. 

Relevance of requirements 
questioned at Delaware 

NEWARK, Del. — (1. P.) — 
Examination of group require- 
ments for the bachelor of arts 
degree to provide greater rele- 
vancy recently received top 
priority by the University of 
Delaware's College of Arts and 
Science committee on planning. 

The flexibility of many of 
these requirements as they now 
stand was discussed at a Com- 
munity Design hearing. One of 
the most frequently criticized 
requirements concerns the 
necessity of passing the inter- 
mediate level of proficiency in 
a foreign language. 

It was suggested that know- 
ledge of a foreign language 
should be judged In terms ol 
knowledge of culture, not Just 
In terms of proficiency. There 
Is a possibility that this re- 
quirement may be replaced hy a 
course in foreign culture. 

The relevancy ol several 
other of the college's group 
requirements, including two 
semesters o I sophomore 
I ngllsh and two semesters of 

Western civilisation, were also 
challenged. It was mentioned 
that a course in speech could 
possibly be more important to 
a student's interests, yet would 
not fulfill the English require- 

Some of the broad objectives _ 
of the College of Arts 
and Science include: develop- 
ing service courses for stu- 
dents In major programs In 
other colleges as determined

needs and requirements with 
the highest level of quality and 
interest as determined by the 
College of Arts and Science; 
pursuing the concept that un- 
dergraduate and graduate pro- 
grams can draw strength from 
each other; and providing pro- 
fessionally competent faculty 
for assistance to the state and 
region as required.
